Fighting Terrorism By Fighting Poverty Volume X
The need for closer collaboration between the rich and poor countries in dealing with political, economic and social challenges is underscored by the truism that globalization is binding all our countries into ever-closer interdependence. No longer can any nation - however self-sufficient - afford to stay complacent and heedless of whether others sink or swim.
As I look forward to many more years of serving our country and people in a private capacity, I take comfort in the realization that the goal of sustainable development and poverty elimination lies within reach of each and every Filipino. Rich and poor, plain citizens and public servants, young and old, have the capacity to move our country forward in spite of short term inadequacies and outside competition in this era of globalization - if we get our act together.
