Marcos Case Exposes Top 3 Failures of a Leader

THE mayhem in social media on the burial rights of a past President crossed every ocean.  Why do so many people have vile opinions on a man who, in comparison to other past Presidents, still shared a key number of successes?  Just like the corporation you run or maybe one you work for, there are three failures that will haunt a leader.

INTERIOR Secretary Ismael Sueno has announced a new partnership venture between China and the Philippines to produce “world-class” aromatic tea. 

Sueno said that Chinese agriculture officials have found a place within the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) that is suited for production of China’s aromatic tea. 

The planned 6,000-hectare tea plantation is located inside the territory of the Moro National Liberation Front (MILF) but Sueno assured the Chinese investors that he will help convince MILF officials that the venture will be beneficial to locals.
