Message to President Gloria Arroyo of the Philippines

5th February 2001

I write to add my own best wishes to the many you will have received already following your appointment as the new President of the Philippines.

I know from my own visit to your country in 1996 of the great progress, both economic and political, which was being made. I fervently hope that the setbacks your country has experienced since then will not deflect you from the task ahead and I wish you and the people of the Philippines every success.
