Purisima named best Finance minister in Asia

Secretary of Finance Cesar Purisima has once again been recognized as Finance Minister of the Year for Asia for 2013 by Emerging Markets.

This is the second time Purisima has received the award, having won it in 2011.

In 2012, Purisima was recognized by Euromoney as the Finance Minister of the Year for 2012, making this year the third straight year that Purisima has received Finance Minister of the Year honors.

Purisima shared the award with President Benigno Aquino, saying the economic gains were attributed to the President's good governance reforms.

"I must make it clear that this award is not mine. The award recognizes things that were only made possible by President Aquino's commitment to good governance, as well as his honesty, leadership, and astute use of political capital."

The DOF head noted that the economic effort from the Philippines would not let up, and that he, the President, and the cabinet would not pull themselves out of contention just yet.

"This means to continue to pursue reform in agencies, such as our Bureau of Customs, where corruption has built strongholds. This also means investing further in our people and especially our infrastructure, the roads, power plants, ports, airports and more that form an equalizing backbone for our economy."
