PRESIDENT’S ANNUAL REPORT
The theme for this term was expressed in my speech on Law Day Celebration and Induction on Sept 26, 2012, that the Rule of Law as a requisite of good governance is necessary for economic growth and Philippine Bar Association (PBA) must put in its share to contribute to the country’s progress now when good governance is shown to be the compelling factor in the country’s improved credit rating and market competitiveness.
Honorable Maria Lourdes P.A. Sereno, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Members of the Cabinet, Members of Congress, Members of the Judiciary, Members of the Diplomatic Corp., Colleagues in the Philippine Bar Association, distinguished guests, friends, ladies and gentlemen.
The Philippine Bar Association has dedicated itself to promote, preserve, and perpetuate the “Rule of Law” and in its celebration of Law Day tonight it re-affirms that sublime commitment.
