MANILA, April 17 – Press Secretary Cerge Remonde said that in the face of continuing global recession and job displacement in the country, more Filipinos are optimistic about their prospects in life.

Remonde said that based on the latest Pulse Asia survey, the number of Filipinos with positive outlook had sharply increased from 22 percent to 29 percent.

Remonde said that based on the survey conducted by international market research firm Synovate, the optimism outlook was particularly pronounced in Metro Manila, which he added, “among people who are usually cynically in their thinking.”

In the corruption issue, the Press Secretary said, the Philippines has dramatically improved based on the latest Hongkong-based Pert Survey.

“The country has continued to prosper and even move ahead in defiance of every efforts by those scenario makers who want to bring us down and smear the record of this administration,” he said.

“Luckily for all of us, it is President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo and not them who remain responsible for guiding safely the seat of government,” he added. (PNA)
