The rural health building of Valencia town in Negros Oriental will acquire new medical equipment, with the P.5-million assistance from Senator Teofisto Guingona III’s Priority Development Assistance Fund.

New RP maturity
reaping rewards: analysts

MANILA - The Philippines passed a crucial stress-test with the orderly sacking of its top judge, confirming a growing political maturity that is helping drive an economic revival, analysts say.

The Philippine economy has for decades been one of Asia's biggest underachievers, bedevilled by coups, corruption and political chaos that scared off investors who instead pumped billions of dollars into neighbouring nations.

That is changing, amid a belief that President Benigno Aquino's heavy focus during his first two years in office on fighting graft and improving standards of governance is starting to pay off.
