NOY'S CORNER THIS PAST WEEK...
(MINI-READS followed by FULL REPORTS below)

THE PRESIDENT'S NEW YEARS DAY: Noy takes 'borrowed' GT-R sports car for drive to Baguio
[Palace officials said they did not know the brand of the sports car and said Aquino merely borrowed it for the New Year break, during which he is hoping for privacy. Some reports said it was a Nissan GT-R. Last year Aquino had said that in his youth, he would often go off alone on long drives, sometimes as far as his home province of Tarlac. “Parang in control ka sa buhay mo, para bang normal ulit, may oras kang mag-isip, wala kang iniintindi (It’s like you’re in control of your life, like everything’s normal again, you have time to think, you’re not worrying about anything),” he told comedian Vice Ganda.]

President Aquino ended 2015 with an activity he will soon fully enjoy again once he steps down in six months: driving a fast car. Palace officials said they did not know the brand of the sports car and said Aquino merely borrowed it for the New Year break, during which he is hoping for privacy. Some reports said it was a Nissan GT-R. Last year Aquino had said that in his youth, he would often go off alone on long drives, sometimes as far as his home province of Tarlac. “Parang in control ka sa buhay mo, para bang normal ulit, may oras kang mag-isip, wala kang iniintindi (It’s like you’re in control of your life, like everything’s normal again, you have time to think, you’re not worrying about anything),” he told comedian Vice Ganda. In January 2011, seven months into his presidency, Aquino came under fire for buying what Malacañang described as a “third-hand” 2007 Porsche to replace the P4.5-million blue BMW he drove when he was a senator. Some reports said the Porsche was purchased from a close friend of Aquino’s. Amid the furor, the President sold the sports car in July 2011. The Palace never identified the previous owner or who bought it from the President. The price was also not disclosed. The President spent his New Year holiday at the Mansion House unannounced. Two presidential helicopters and another Air Force Huey helicopter, part of Aquino’s advance party, arrived at the Mansion House at around 3:30 p.m. on Thursday. “The President spent the New Year privately,” a member of the Office of the Press Secretary-Philippine Information Agency (OPS-PIA) said. Joseph Zambrano, a staff at the OPS-PIA Cordillera, refused to say when the President will return to Manila. Baguio Rep. Nicasio Aliping, an ally of Aquino in the Liberal Party, also could not say until when the President would stay in the city. In 2014, the President celebrated New Year in Manila with his family.

ALSO: New Presidential Car - The Mercedes-Benz S-Guard


FLASHBACK JULY 2010 -Mercedez-Benz S-Guard.
With the inauguration of the 15th Philippine President Benigno Simeon “Noy Noy” Cojuangco Aquino III comes a new hope for the Filipino people. Following the footsteps of his infamous parents, his battle cry is also “Laban” as he undertakes the never-ending battle against corruption. Going up against notorious corrupt government officials, he surely needs to gear up in preparation for the war ahead. Welcome Noy’s new presidential car, the Mercedez-Benz S-Guard. Externally, the S-Guard is virtually identical to a standard S-Class and still retains the same functions despite the amount of armor that envelopes it. So technically, the only identifying mark on the Presidential car is the No. 1 plate it bears front and back. The S-Guard weighs about 1.5 tonnes heavier than the standard production S-Class, thus essential modifications had to be done to maintain the S-Guard’s performance. It is outfitted with a redesigned suspension system that uses specially reinforced components to ensure the safety and ride comfort of all the passengers despite the weight gain of as much as 70%. The ABS and EPS also had to be tweaked due to different handling characteristics of the heavier vehicle. The S-Guard runs on Michelin PAX run-flat tires, which allows it to drive up to 80Km/h for a distance of 30 Kilometers in case the President comes under threat. It even has a specially coated fuel tank that reacts to damage caused by projectiles and seals any holes by itself. I suppose that’s also a safety net in case the President drops one of his cigarette butts too close to the fuel tank. And if that’s not enough, the S-Guard underwent a simulated endurance test on torture tracks to put it through the paces. This car is almost like the Chuck Norris of automobiles. READ MORE...

ALSO: ‘Traffic can make Metro Manila uninhabitable in 4 years’


JJANUARY 4 -ohn Forbes, senior advisor of the American Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines, told The STAR that if roads and other infrastructure are not upgraded immediately, the traffic mess in the metropolis would likely worsen on the back of the country’s fast-developing automotive industry.

 At the rate the traffic situation is getting worse, Metro Manila may become “uninhabitable” within four years, an official of a foreign chamber said yesterday. John Forbes, senior advisor of the American Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines, told The STAR that if roads and other infrastructure are not upgraded immediately, the traffic mess in the metropolis would likely worsen on the back of the country’s fast-developing automotive industry.
 “Metro Manila is at risk of becoming uninhabitable as annual new car growth increases to 500,000 by 2020,” Forbes said.
“While roads are being improved throughout the country, the National Capital Region urgently needs more limited access roads, especially skyways, and rail.” The Philippines is seen as an important automotive market growth area in the region as the volume of vehicles sold is expected to surge. Domestic vehicle sales in 2020 would account to between eight to 10 percent of the projected total sales of five to six million units within member economies of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.
From 168,000 units sold in 2010, vehicle sales in the country reached 269,000 units in 2014 and are expected to surpass industry target of 310,000 units in 2015, according to the Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines Inc. (CAMPI).
This year, CAMPI sees vehicle sales reaching a new high of 350,000 units, on its way to 500,000 units by 2020.
Aside from access roads, Forbes said the new airport terminal in Clark should be built in the next two years with a non-stop fast train connector similar to Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong, and Tokyo to improve traffic congestion. THE FULL REPORT

JANUARY 3 -President Benigno Aquino III and the Department of Health Chief Janette Garin lauded the Philippine National Police for its effort and law enforcement that helped reduced the casualties during the New Year festivities. File photo MANILA, Philippines – President Benigno Aquino III commended the Philippine National Police (PNP) for its efforts and for reducing the casualties during the New Year celebrations.
“Congratulations and please pass the JOB WELL DONE to all. HAPPY NEW YEAR," Aquino's text message to PNP Director General Ricardo Marquez read. Aquino cited Health Secretary Janette Garin’s report that only 384 medical emergency cases were recorded by the Department of Health on New Year ’s Day. This was 57 percent lower than the five-year average and 54 percent lower than the recorded cases last year, according to Aquino. Garin added in her report that DOH hospitals performed only nine amputations and noted zero cases of firecracker ingestion. Like Aquino, Garin recognized the significant lowering of number of firecracker-related injuries for the effective law enforcement of PNP against prohibited firecrackers. “The confiscations done by PNP helped a lot,” Garin said. Marquez then extended Aquino’s congratulations to all PNP units down the line thru an official SMS sent out by the National Operations Center to all PNP regional, provincial and municipal police stations and precincts on duty.

ALSO: By J.B. Baylon - THOUGHTS BEFORE THE MADNESS OF ELECTIONS BEGINS


JANUARY 4 -By Jose Bayani Baylon
THERE is something I am bracing for now that the country has returned to regular work mode, albeit with some hangover from the holidays. (Mind you it’s 356 days to Christmas 2016!) And that’s the advent of madness that the political season will bring – madness that will unfortunately include people not only disagreeing but being disagreeable, friends and families torn by political choices, and the country on edge as it awaits the unfolding of the campaign and the final list of who is qualified to run! Indeed there are two things I earnestly wish of all of my friends: one, that we agree to disagree without being disagreeable, and two, that we agree NEVER to tolerate cheating in favor of our candidate – and that includes actually being party to efforts to cheat. I think some of my classmates from UP Law may know a thing or two about the latter, but I hope this is behind them now. Because I would want them to tell me to my face that if they were part of any cheating effort in the past they were party to the effort under duress. Like maybe because their boss assigned them to do it? But what constitutes cheating, or thwarting the popular will? In my book that is using extra-legal means to bring about a result that is different from what the public had desired via their exercise of the right of suffrage. In short, any effort like “dagdag-bawas”. This, therefore, does not include challenging a candidate’s qualifications to run for office, the likes that Senator Grace Poe is facing today. I do not consider that cheating, nor thwarting the peoples’ will, because our election laws have provisions for qualifications and anyone and everyone who presents himself to the public musty necessarily meet those qualifications. And questioning a candidate’s qualification is a legal maneuver that is simply meant to ensure that the public is presented with a final list of candidates who fit the (minimum) requirements of the law. But it would include any attempt to railroad a decision, or any means by which a Commissioner or a Justice is “influenced” to decide one way or the other. I don’t think this will happen, and I hope we all will be able to accept the final decision of the Supreme Court whatever it may be. But once the decision is made and becomes final then it will be time to move on to the actual campaign and we will all be able to make a final determination of our candidate of choice – assuming you haven’t made that decision by this time. Beyond the Supreme Court making a final determination of who is qualified to run and who isn’t, there is the more important question of whether the elections will truly reflect the popular will. We’ve had traumatic experiences about this. In 1987, the popular will was thrown out the window and may never really be known because People Power took matters into its own hands and determined once and for all who became the de jure President of the Philippines. Seventeen years later, in 2004, we had another traumatic experience when doubts about the legitimacy of the election of the incumbent President were created; this time People Power in a negative way determined once and for all who was de jure President of the Philippines. The absence of People Power and the presence of a few generals like Esperon, to be exact. READ MORE...

INQUIRER PHOTO/JOAN BONDOC CANBERRA—As the Philippines stands on the threshold of 2016, Filipinos are impaled between hopes of a new leadership in the May presidential election and the undesirable legacies of political regimes during the past two decades.
Elections in democracies are moments for renewal and political change—either for the better or for the worse. On the eve of the New Year, the nation received bad and disheartening news from the outgoing government. In his New Year message, President Aquino pledged to continue working “faithfully” for the nation in his last six months in office, and called on Filipinos to bid farewell to a “historic 2015.” READ READERS' COMMENTS...

MANILA, JANUARY 4, 2016 (PHILSTAR) By Aurea Calica, Artemio Dumlao January 2, 2016 - President Aquino ended 2015 with an activity he will soon fully enjoy again once he steps down in six months: driving a fast car.

PNoy's Presidential cars: Aquino gives go-signal for purchase of 2 presidential cars By Aurea Calica | Updated March 20, 2012 - 12:00am 0 0 googleplus0 0


GMANEWS ONLINE PHOTO

MANILA, Philippines - Saying security could not be compromised, President Aquino has given the go-signal for the purchase of his official car and those that will be used by state visitors.

“We’re checking now what vehicles are available and what are suitable,” Aquino, who was heavily criticized for buying a luxury car when he was still new in office, said in Baguio City after attending the Philippine Military Academy graduation rites over the weekend. He said there would be state and government leaders visiting the country and it would be humiliating if the cars provided them would malfunction.

In the case of the leaders of Kuwait and Qatar, the President said “it’s well and good if they are roughly my age or younger.”

“If they’re a little older than me, it may not be that easy if we ask them to ride the Cruiser. It will be difficult to explain if they trip and fall. But you saw the vehicle that was left to me, as you know, it has suffered in flooding. The distributor of the vehicle stated that they have repaired it and it is running well. But there is no guarantee that there will be no future issues,” Aquino said.

He said the emphasis is for the safety of the visitors who will be bringing substantial investments, “which would reflect on the government’s capacity to ensure that investments are worthwhile here.”

The President said providing security was his primary responsibility and that he was grateful that many leaders would want to visit the country due to their interests in business prospects her.

“They are also interested to help us in the many different problems that we have. That is also part of the courtesy,” he said. Early this month, lawmakers filed House Resolution 2191 asking the government to acquire a new bulletproof and bombproof vehicle for the President.

An Waray party-list Rep. Florencio Bem Noel said Aquino could no longer use the black bulletproof Mercedes Benz presidential car that Aqunio’s predecessor used after it was submerged in flood during tropical storm “Ondoy” in September 2009.

“The President’s car is very old.

Politicians, businessmen, mayors all use bulletproof cars. Our President does not. He has the number 1 license plate but his car is old. Even the PSG (Presidential Security Group) say they have to follow the President closely due to security reasons and the President does not like too many guards following him,” Noel said.

Aquino currently uses his own Land Cruiser and a bulletproof Lexus.

According to the House resolution, the three-vehicle official presidential fleet at Malacañang – consisting of two Mercedes Benz W221 S-Class limousines acquired in 1998 and a Mercedes-Benz S-Guard automobile bought in 2007 – is “in a sorry state, unfit for use by the Chief Executive.”

THE CONTROVERSIAL PORSCHE: TOY STORY 14 01 2011

IT’S FRIDAY! Another work week is almost over! And what a week for Filipinos! Gas prices have gone up. The proposed MRT and LRT fare hike has been approved. And the President has a new sports car!

New Toy

Something new is making President Aquino smile these days. For a change, it’s not a new date.

Reports say President Aquino ditched his BMW for a Porsche. And then, he felt weird. You know… he’s used to being ditched, not the other way around.

The President’s got a new toy, a 2007 model Porsche. When the new toy was delivered last December, did you know what he did first? He returned Joshua’s PSP.

Last year, President Aquino was praised for frugality when he ate hotdogs on a New York street instead of spending thousands of dollars in a restaurant.

Today, he is being criticized for buying a 4.5-million peso Porsche amid reports that the number of hungry Filipinos has gone up. To appease his critics, President Aquino plans to eat hotdogs in his Porsche.

Lawmakers have different reactions when they learned that President Aquino bought a Porsche. His allies wouldn’t fault him for it. Militant lawmakers couldn’t stomach it. Senator Lito Lapid couldn’t spell it. Toingk!

The Philippine Daily Inquirer reported that President Aquino tried to give his new car a test drive at the Clark Freeport last December 26. He didn’t enjoy it though because every time he would start the engine, Mar Roxas would appear and say, “Besprend itabi mo. Ako na!”

NOY SELLS 'RISKY' PORSCHE / NOYNOY AQUINO'S PROMISES TRACKERS ONLINE

MANILA, JULY 19, 2011 (STAR) By Aurea Calica - President Aquino disclosed yesterday that he had parted ways with his Porsche, not because it was seen as a reason for his declining ratings but because it became a security nightmare.

“It was putting an unnecessary risk for the people who are guarding me,” the President said, referring to the Presidential Security Group (PSG).

He said he sold the car because “you (media) over-exposed it.”

The President purchased the white luxury car last year after selling his dark blue BMW.

Asked if it was true that he had sold his Porsche, the President said “yes” and admitted that the decision was “a bit difficult.”

“So it was like an advertisement that hey, I am here. I am most vulnerable here so I just relegated it to the garage and it would deteriorate if it’s not used. So it’s like it was time to let somebody experience it also,” the President said in an ambush interview at the Department of Foreign Affairs, which celebrated its 113th anniversary yesterday.

Aquino said “I sold it for exactly the same price that I bought it for” and refused to take any further questions.

“I hope that’s the last question on the car that is no longer in my possession,” he said.

Asked if he missed having it, the President replied: “I think I’ve answered enough questions on the car. Anything of more substance?”

PSG chief Col. Ramon Mateo Dizon said he had not seen the car for about “three weeks to a month now.”

“He already let go of it,” Dizon said, but refused to give other details on the car’s sale.

The President, when teased about giving a blowout for having sold an expensive car, said: “Walang kinita (No profit).”

Land transport: Official state car of the President of the Philippines

The incumbent President, Benigno S. Aquino III, prefers to use his personal vehicle, a Toyota Land Cruiser 200 or his relative's Lexus LX-570 over the black Presidential limousines after their electronic mechanisms were damaged by floodwater. The Palace has announced its interest to acquire a new Presidential limousine.

CHITCHIAT FROM THE PHILIPPINE DEFENSE FORUM

FROM JOURNAL ONLINE:

Noy’s new luxury ride? by Tess Bedico Friday, 28 January 2011 19:49

HAS President Benigno Aquino III acquired a new luxury car?

A white Lexus was seen parked in front of Malacañang Palace yesterday while the President was addressing heads of state firms during the observance of the Government-Owned and Controlled Corporations Governance Day.


It's the Lexus LX 470 --Seen aboard a bullet-proof Toyota Lexus when he visited the victims of the Makati bus bombing, Aquino took extra time to explain on that he did not buy the armored vehicle. He said the car, which model belongs to Toyota’s luxury line, was leased by his brother-in-law and lent to him. “This the last time I will talk about cars unless any of you says it has impact with the national interest," Aquino said, in obvious reference to earlier media reports about his passion for expensive cars and his efforts to explain his recent purchase of a Porsche 911 Turbo. “Yung sasakyan na gamit ko ngayon ay security vehicle. Hindi ko pwedeng i-discuss sa inyo ang security features, capacity dahil parang sinabi ko na rin sa mga kalaban na ito ang paghandaan nyo. Nilease ng bayaw ko. [The] alternative is to buy a different vehicle by the government," he explained. (The car I’m using now is a security vehicle. I can’t discuss with you its security features, its capacity, because that would divulge to our enemies what they should prepare for. It was leased by my brother-in-law.) The President said the official vehicle that Malacañang’s previous occupant left for his use was a Mercedes Benz limousine, which was damaged when typhoon Ondoy hit Metro Manila in 2009. GMA NEWS ONLINE Published January 28, 2011 By AMITA LEGASPI, GMANews.TV

The President used the same car when he visited the victims of the bus bombing incident at St. Luke’s Global City Hospital Tuesday night. (January 25, 2011)

Presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda said he was not aware if the President had purchased a new car. “We will verify,” he said in a text message.

Reports said the Lexus car is bullet-proof and costs about P8.5 million.

Aquino earlier admitted buying a Porsche said to be worth P4.5 million. He said he sold his old car, a BMW, to buy the Porsche and he got a good deal since its mileage is only 10,000 kilometers.

Aquino justified his decision to buy a Porsche, saying driving a sports car is a form of relaxation which also helps him in his decision making.

Quote Mr. Aquino said the Lexus LX570, with plate number PIZ808, was lent to him by a brother-in-law “for its security features.”

But he later changed his story and said a campaign supporter had lent him the car. The President declined to name the supporter, saying he did not want reporters to interview him and find out about the car’s security features.

Presidential Security Group head Col. Ramon Mateo Dizon said that, “as a rule, all the President’s vehicles must be armored.”

The presidential car, a black Mercedes-Benz S600 sedan that was passed on to him by the previous administration, had been damaged by tropical storm Ondoy, the President said earlier.

Mr. Aquino had previously used his personal Toyota Land Cruiser for his official engagements, but he stopped doing so because it wasn’t armor-plated.

It's exactly what I mean... "donated" cars by car companies are still decided on by some prominent figures in society who also happen to own said companies, and decide whether these things happen or not...

Lagim, the Lexus brand is a high-end Toyota. You have a pretty good eye, but what you saw was this:

It was a Toyota Land Cruiser. Now here's the rub; Toyota Motors dresses up the Land Cruiser and calls it Lexus LX 470 and charges the buyer about $20,000 more. Of course the Lexus comes in with equipment that the Land Cruiser does not have but the basic body design is the same.

The one we're talking about here is the Lexus LX 470. Sana nga may picture tayo na magkatabi yung Toyota Land Cruiser at Lexus LX 470. That.. would be a great eye treat.

ANS, is it just me or the Filipino dignitary at t Left is 2nd Republic Pres Jose P Laurel and the guy at center is 3rd Republic Pres Manuel Roxas?

The pic seems to have been taken early post-war based on the uniforms worn by the soldiers as well as the greasegun.

Laurel got exhonorated for his Occupation role, elected to the Senate and his house is now owned by Sen Manny Villar.

In his 1946 run for the Presidency, Roxas founded the LP. His Grandson is its president it. A grandson of another 2nd Republic Official is now the Party's Titulat Chair. Care to guess who the LP chair is?

Philippine Presidential car with plate number 1 and Presidential Standard

The Presidential car used by Manuel L. Quezon during his term The President of the Philippines uses two black and heavily armored Mercedes-Benz W221 S600 Guard, whereas one is a decoy vehicle.

In convoys, the President is escorted by the Presidential Security Group using primarily Nissan Patrol SUVs with the combination of the following vehicles: Audi A6, BMW 7 Series, Chevrolet Suburban, Hyundai Equus, Hyundai Starex, Toyota Camry, Toyota Fortuner, Toyota Land Cruiser, Philippine National Police 400cc motorcycles, Philippine National Police Toyota Altis (Police car variant), other government-owned vehicles, and ambulances at the tail of the convoy; the number depends on the destination.


Presidential armored car of the Philippines, with license plate number "1" and the national flag and presidential standard of the Philippines.

The presidential cars are designated and registered a plate number of 1 or the word PANGULO (President). The limousine bears the Flag of the Philippines and, occasionally, the Presidential Standard.

For regional trips, the President boards a Toyota Coaster or Mitsubishi Fuso Rosa or other vehicles owned by government-owned and controlled corporations or government agencies. In this case, the PSG escorts the President using local police cars with an ambulance at the tail of the convoy.

The Office of the President has also owned various cars over the decades, including a 1937 Chrysler Airflow that served as the country's very first Presidential limousine for Manuel L. Quezon.

PNoy’s New Presidential Car: The Mercedes-Benz S-Guard Words by Christopher Kho and Jade Lu | Photos courtesy of CATS Motors Philippines


Mercedez-Benz S-Guard.

With the inauguration of the 15th Philippine President Benigno Simeon “Noy Noy” Cojuangco Aquino III comes a new hope for the Filipino people. Following the footsteps of his infamous parents, his battle cry is also “Laban” as he undertakes the never-ending battle against corruption. Going up against notorious corrupt government officials, he surely needs to gear up in preparation for the war ahead. Welcome Noy’s new presidential car, the Mercedez-Benz S-Guard.

Externally, the S-Guard is virtually identical to a standard S-Class and still retains the same functions despite the amount of armor that envelopes it. So technically, the only identifying mark on the Presidential car is the No. 1 plate it bears front and back.

The S-Guard weighs about 1.5 tonnes heavier than the standard production S-Class, thus essential modifications had to be done to maintain the S-Guard’s performance. It is outfitted with a redesigned suspension system that uses specially reinforced components to ensure the safety and ride comfort of all the passengers despite the weight gain of as much as 70%. The ABS and EPS also had to be tweaked due to different handling characteristics of the heavier vehicle.

The S-Guard runs on Michelin PAX run-flat tires, which allows it to drive up to 80Km/h for a distance of 30 Kilometers in case the President comes under threat. It even has a specially coated fuel tank that reacts to damage caused by projectiles and seals any holes by itself. I suppose that’s also a safety net in case the President drops one of his cigarette butts too close to the fuel tank. And if that’s not enough, the S-Guard underwent a simulated endurance test on torture tracks to put it through the paces. This car is almost like the Chuck Norris of automobiles.

Noy’s set of wheels is powered by a V12 biturbo engine that’s strong enough to plow through even the thickest roll of red tape. But a V8 CDI option is also available in case he finds unleaded too expensive. And for extreme emergency situations, the S-Guard comes equipped with an Emergency Fresh Air System, Fire Extinguishing System, Emergency Boot Lid Opening, and Panic Alarm System.

Inside, Mercedes-Benz has transformed this luxury sedan into a mobile office complete with phone, fax, file sorter, and a separate business console. But in case the President wishes to sit back and relax, he can indulge in the S-Guard’s amenities such as four-zone air conditioning, refrigerator, rear entertainment system and a built-in seat massage; more than enough to soothe away even the most obscure scandals that might come his way.

But before anyone gets to sit behind the wheel, drivers of the presidential car have to be sent to Germany for a two-day course at Mercedes-Benz’s Guard Intensive Driving Safety Training. Talk about responsibility, this is part of Mercedes-Benz’s commitment to passenger safety.

CATS Motors Philippines, the exclusive Philippine distributor of Mercedes-Benz, has a big responsibility resting on their shoulders as their flagship armored luxury sedan protects the number one man in the country. To say that it’s a big responsibility being the presidential car is an understatement. The new big car of the new big boss requires much more than good looks and complimentary bodyguards; it requires a touch of elegance and an emphasis on safety.

The Mercedes-Benz S-Guard is built to protect heads of nations even without the use of a ‘wang-wang’. It is a model of aesthetic, security, and class - a fitting vehicle for the country’s chief executive.

‘Traffic can make Metro Manila uninhabitable in 4 years’ By Richmond Mercurio (The Philippine Star) | Updated January 4, 2016 - 12:00am 0 0 googleplus0 0


John Forbes, senior advisor of the American Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines, told The STAR that if roads and other infrastructure are not upgraded immediately, the traffic mess in the metropolis would likely worsen on the back of the country’s fast-developing automotive industry.

MANILA, Philippines - At the rate the traffic situation is getting worse, Metro Manila may become “uninhabitable” within four years, an official of a foreign chamber said yesterday.

John Forbes, senior advisor of the American Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines, told The STAR that if roads and other infrastructure are not upgraded immediately, the traffic mess in the metropolis would likely worsen on the back of the country’s fast-developing automotive industry.


“Metro Manila is at risk of becoming uninhabitable as annual new car growth increases to 500,000 by 2020,” Forbes said.
“While roads are being improved throughout the country, the National Capital Region urgently needs more limited access roads, especially skyways, and rail.”

The Philippines is seen as an important automotive market growth area in the region as the volume of vehicles sold is expected to surge.

Domestic vehicle sales in 2020 would account to between eight to 10 percent of the projected total sales of five to six million units within member economies of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.


From 168,000 units sold in 2010, vehicle sales in the country reached 269,000 units in 2014 and are expected to surpass industry target of 310,000 units in 2015, according to the Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines Inc. (CAMPI).


This year, CAMPI sees vehicle sales reaching a new high of 350,000 units, on its way to 500,000 units by 2020.


Aside from access roads, Forbes said the new airport terminal in Clark should be built in the next two years with a non-stop fast train connector similar to Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong, and Tokyo to improve traffic congestion.

PNoy lauds PNP for New Year work By Rosette Adel (philstar.com) | Updated January 3, 2016 - 4:02pm 1 12 googleplus0 0

President Benigno Aquino III and the Department of Health Chief Janette Garin lauded the Philippine National Police for its effort and law enforcement that helped reduced the casualties during the New Year festivities. File photo MANILA, Philippines – President Benigno Aquino III commended the Philippine National Police (PNP) for its efforts and for reducing the casualties during the New Year celebrations.

“Congratulations and please pass the JOB WELL DONE to all. HAPPY NEW YEAR," Aquino's text message to PNP Director General Ricardo Marquez read.

Aquino cited Health Secretary Janette Garin’s report that only 384 medical emergency cases were recorded by the Department of Health on New Year ’s Day. This was 57 percent lower than the five-year average and 54 percent lower than the recorded cases last year, according to Aquino.

Garin added in her report that DOH hospitals performed only nine amputations and noted zero cases of firecracker ingestion.

Like Aquino, Garin recognized the significant lowering of number of firecracker-related injuries for the effective law enforcement of PNP against prohibited firecrackers.

“The confiscations done by PNP helped a lot,” Garin said.

Marquez then extended Aquino’s congratulations to all PNP units down the line thru an official SMS sent out by the National Operations Center to all PNP regional, provincial and municipal police stations and precincts on duty.

Aquino earlier ordered the PNP to strictly prohibit dangerous firecrackers and indiscriminate firing of guns nationwide during the holiday season.

Based on reports gathered by the PNP headquarters in Camp Crame, Quezon City, there are nine persons arrested for alleged indiscriminate firing of guns at the height of the Christmas and New Year festivities while there are 22 persons arrested for possession and sale of prohibited firecrackers.

On the other hand, PNP confiscated P 1,127,629 worth of prohibited firecrackers and pyrotechnic devices.

Aside from law enforcement, the PNP also launched a massive public information awareness and drive to support the DOH campaign against prohibited firecrackers through the help of Directorate for Police Community Relations under Director Wilfredo Franco and the Public Information Office under Chief Superintendent Wilben Mayor. The authorities also conducted surprise inspection on establishments selling fireworks to help minimize the casualties.

To intensify the campaign against prohibited firecrackers and indiscriminate use of firearms, the PNP urged the public to post or upload videos and pictures of persons who used firearms in celebration of New Year in social media or report the violators to the nearest police station for immediate investigation and action.

THOUGHTS BEFORE THE MADNESS OF ELECTIONS BEGINS By Jose Bayani Baylon January 04, 2016


By Jose Bayani Baylon

THERE is something I am bracing for now that the country has returned to regular work mode, albeit with some hangover from the holidays. (Mind you it’s 356 days to Christmas 2016!) And that’s the advent of madness that the political season will bring – madness that will unfortunately include people not only disagreeing but being disagreeable, friends and families torn by political choices, and the country on edge as it awaits the unfolding of the campaign and the final list of who is qualified to run!

Indeed there are two things I earnestly wish of all of my friends: one, that we agree to disagree without being disagreeable, and two, that we agree NEVER to tolerate cheating in favor of our candidate – and that includes actually being party to efforts to cheat.

I think some of my classmates from UP Law may know a thing or two about the latter, but I hope this is behind them now. Because I would want them to tell me to my face that if they were part of any cheating effort in the past they were party to the effort under duress. Like maybe because their boss assigned them to do it?

But what constitutes cheating, or thwarting the popular will? In my book that is using extra-legal means to bring about a result that is different from what the public had desired via their exercise of the right of suffrage. In short, any effort like “dagdag-bawas”.

This, therefore, does not include challenging a candidate’s qualifications to run for office, the likes that Senator Grace Poe is facing today. I do not consider that cheating, nor thwarting the peoples’ will, because our election laws have provisions for qualifications and anyone and everyone who presents himself to the public musty necessarily meet those qualifications. And questioning a candidate’s qualification is a legal maneuver that is simply meant to ensure that the public is presented with a final list of candidates who fit the (minimum) requirements of the law.

But it would include any attempt to railroad a decision, or any means by which a Commissioner or a Justice is “influenced” to decide one way or the other. I don’t think this will happen, and I hope we all will be able to accept the final decision of the Supreme Court whatever it may be. But once the decision is made and becomes final then it will be time to move on to the actual campaign and we will all be able to make a final determination of our candidate of choice – assuming you haven’t made that decision by this time.

Beyond the Supreme Court making a final determination of who is qualified to run and who isn’t, there is the more important question of whether the elections will truly reflect the popular will.

We’ve had traumatic experiences about this. In 1987, the popular will was thrown out the window and may never really be known because People Power took matters into its own hands and determined once and for all who became the de jure President of the Philippines.

Seventeen years later, in 2004, we had another traumatic experience when doubts about the legitimacy of the election of the incumbent President were created; this time People Power in a negative way determined once and for all who was de jure President of the Philippines.

The absence of People Power and the presence of a few generals like Esperon, to be exact.

READ MORE...

Six years later we welcomed the advent of technology and for the first time since election results were pre-determined by Malacañang during the Marcos era, we knew very quickly who were the duly elected President and Vice President of the Philippines, thanks to PCOS. I have to admit that I remain wary of this new technology because I have no proof that my votes were actually counted by the machine, or that the PCOS machine hasn’t been pre-programmed or pre-loaded with some paid-for result. Could the PCOS machines be the electronic version of Steve Harvey, announcing one result when the real result is something else? I guess you and I will never know, will we?

Between today and that announcement of the identity of our President and Vice-President-elect, there will be the campaign madness. Facebook and other social media will be littered with stories – factual, partly factual, as well as total fabrications – that will be commented upon and shared in ways that can boost – but usually damage – a candidate’s chance of winning – not to mention his reputation.

Not that this is a 21st Century phenomenon.

My “elders” who are part of the weekly weekend breakfast I host tell me of the “golden orinola” allegations launched against Elpidio Quirino that effectively damaged his reputation and led eventually to the election of Ramon Magsaysay as President of the Philippines. Were the allegations true? Apparently not, at least according to my breakfast elders. It seems that an influential political and business family wanted to pressure the President into choosing one of their kin to be his running mate and thus launched this assault on his reputation.

Beware of 21st century versions of this “golden orinola” story. More than mass media, social media can make untruths seem so real, and make he who speaks the truth sound like he is espousing lies. It’s too late to ask Quirino, but you can still ask Manny Villar. (Oh, and by the way, in both cases the culprit may very well be the same!)

Brace for the madness!

ANALYSIS - Indulging in wishful thinking on his legacy By: Amando Doronila @inquirerdotnet
Philippine Daily Inquirer 11:53 PM January 3rd, 2016


PRESIDENT BENIGNO AQUINO lll AT AFP ANNIVERSARY/ President Benigno Simeon Aquino lll during the 80th Anniversary of the AFP held at Hariborn Hangar, Airforce City, Clark Airbase in Pampanga. INQUIRER PHOTO/JOAN BONDOC


CANBERRA—As the Philippines stands on the threshold of 2016, Filipinos are impaled between hopes of a new leadership in the May presidential election and the undesirable legacies of political regimes during the past two decades.

Elections in democracies are moments for renewal and political change—either for the better or for the worse. On the eve of the New Year, the nation received bad and disheartening news from the outgoing government.

In his New Year message, President Aquino pledged to continue working “faithfully” for the nation in his last six months in office, and called on Filipinos to bid farewell to a “historic 2015.”

"... the ratings could have dire consequences on the Philippines’ ability to attract a higher level of investments" It's the government's lack of transparency, accountability and favouring of local business monopoly which made the Philippines unattractive to foreign investors.

He is a UPenn graduate not Wharton as a Wharton graduate should have taken up graduate studies which Roxas did not. And UPenn cannot be proud of him after he bungled the Yolanda funds and accomplished nothing as DOTC and DILG secretary. I voted Aquino in 2010 and I am so very very very disappointed. And I cannot vote for his anointed who is apparently a liar, hypocrite and incompetent. He achieved nothing. Panay lang kapalpakan at kasinungalingan. He is a good example of someone graduated abroad but with nothing to show for it but shallow propaganda via abias cbn.

Maybe your expectation is too high. Maybe you think all problems of the country will be resolved overnight. Me, I did not vote Aquino, later in his term. I like what is going on. Many good things happen that did not happen in the previous administrations combined. But if you are a blind critic, nothing would be enough for you.

Every 6 six years the country goes on different direction depending on who sits the presidency. There is no definite vision as to where the country is headed that's why it can never reach to its destination.

it can never reach a destination of peace and progress if the leaders are liars, hypocrite, self-centered and insensitive to the needs of its citizens. my entire family voted aquino because of my influence and i have to admit.,..i made a mistake, my fault because i voted someone who had achieved nothing as a congressman and senator. and now he annointed someone who also achieved nothing but bungled the yolanda funds and let the MRT reach its rotten state. Never again. This time i will choose someone who achieved something. Someone who truly cares for his people...someone who has proven himself as a government executive. someone who led his people to self-discipline, peace and progress. he is not perfect but nobody is. ang importante ay may nagawa at napatunayan na siya...na kaya niya. di lang basta propaganda.

The Aquino III administration is the most productive and successful regime than all the previous administrations combined. Many corrupt and thieves of the government coffers are either jailed or awaiting trials. Many are on their way of being arrested. This had never happened before, The last six years of Pnoy, although very short for a good president, is way,way ahead of the accomplishments of past presidents.
