The Philippines Compared To Our Asian Neighbors

“Half a century ago, the Philippines was one of the most progressive countries in Asia, just behind Japan and well ahead of other ASEAN countries. Our economy was vibrant, and we excelled in many fields outside of entertainment. Students from neighbouring countries came to study in the different schools in the Philippines, and we were very competitive in sports other than boxing.”
