State of the Nation Address
His Excellency Benigno S. Aquino III
President of the Philippines

Good Governance: Catalyst to National Transformation
Our governance reform agenda is to transform the government into one that operates
in “daylight” – one that does not only promote but embodies transparency,
institutionalized accountability, and enhanced public participation in governance. The
end goal is to achieve inclusive growth where no one is left behind, by providing
opportunities for the worse off by creating jobs, drawing the majority to the economic
and social mainstream, and reducing poverty.

Guided by these, we put in place crucial policies and institutional reforms that address
administrative inefficiencies, revenue losses caused by corruption, weak enforcement
of laws, and the need for a greater role for the people to participate in decisions that
affect them.

These have resulted in renewed vigor in the country’s business climate, greater
investment interest in the Philippine market, and strong economic growth that has
enabled us to create more meaningful jobs for our people in the areas of agriculture,
tourism, and infrastructure.
