Arroyo Addresses United Nations Today


Maglalang, Ferdie J., Manila Bulletin


Witnesses signing of 3 business accords NEW YORK CITY (Via PLDT) - President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo addresses today the 56th United Nations (UN) General Assembly where she is expected to appeal to its member-countries to hinge the fight against poverty with the international fight against terrorism.

The President, on the second day of her official visit since she arrived here last Thursday, will push for an integrated response among nations in addressing global poverty vis-a-vis with the fight against terrorism.

President Arroyo will speak at the General Assembly Hall in the UN General Headquarters here.

She is also expected to lay down her administration's concrete and practical steps in warding off potential terrorist attacks in the country, particularly against the kidnap-for-ransom Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG).

It may be recalled that the Abu Sayyaf, which has kidnaped scores of foreign and local tourists, has been linked to al Queda network of Osama bin Laden, the prime suspect in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the United States.

A few days ago, the local military authorities have rescued seven of the remaining hostages held by the ASG due to their relentless pursuit against the bandit group in Basilan and Sulu.

Although the government has yet to secure the safety of an American couple and a Filipino held captives by the ASG, it remained optimistic that the protracted hostage crisis will soon be resolved.

The President will also witness the formal signing of an international treaty, to be known as the UN Convention for the Suppression of Financing Terrorism, designed to cut off the flow of funds for terrorist groups.

She will hold a closed-door meeting with UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, to be followed by another meeting with the Philippine Mission to the UN and other Filipinos who are working at the UN General Headquarters.

President Arroyo has expressed full and unqualified support to the United States-led fight against international terrorism, anchoring her anti-terrorism policy to the UN resolution condemning the Sept. 11 attacks on the US.

She has offered the use of the country's sea, land, and air ports for the use of the international coalition battling the scourge of terrorism that has wreck havoc not only in the US but also in many developing nations, including the Philippines.

3 agreements

NEW YORK CITY (Via PLDT) - President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo witnessed here yesterday the formal signing of three business agreements to boost the country's Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector.

The three business agreements, signed on the first day of the President's week-long working visit in the United States, are among seven business agreements expected to be signed.

The signing of business agreements was arranged by Trade and Industry Secretary Manuel Roxas II who is a regular companion of the President in her trips abroad.

The first agreement was signed between Immequire President Stuart Discount and William Lo and Aaron Perez-Daple, president and director of US Tele Response Center Inc. (TRC).

Under the agreement, the Immequire, on behalf of TRC, will conduct an outbound telemarketing campaign to raise funds for US-based non-profit organizations.

Since 1988, the TRC has developed and implemented successful programs for highly-respected charities and non-profit organizations nationally, regionally, and locally.

It has been ranked 45th among the top outbound teleservices agencies in the March 2000 issue of Call Center Solutions magazine. …
