Hong Kong magazine names President Duterte as 2016's Person of the Year
Krizette Laureta Chu, "Duterte's decision to grow and maintain good relations with our neighbors will be one of his greatest legacies yet."
Asia is where it's at, and where it will be, for the next few decades. As the US and Europe continue to flounder, and the West pivots toward the emerging continent as power, both military and economic, grows in the region, Duterte's decision to grow and maintain good relations with our neighbors will be one of his greatest legacies yet.

The purse strings will be owned by Asians, and the world knows that.
In the January 2017 issue of Yazhou Zhoukan, Asia Weekly, published in HK, President Duterte was chosen as Person of the Year 2016.
We are moving towards the right direction. Xie xie!
