Shinzo Abe: A Visionary
The assassination of Shinzo Abe, Japan’s former Prime Minister, was a shock to all of us. His death was horrific not only because of its suddenness and the fact that it was caught on video but also because Abe was a dear friend to the Filipino nation.

In fact, Japan was one of the first countries President Duterte visited when he assumed office, and Prime Minister Abe had likewise visited our country twice, also going to Davao City.
Economic Game Plan
