“Good governance and responsible citizenship’: this is the tagline I use for my advocacy.”
- Jesus P. Estanislao
The Spaniards came to colonize the Philippines thinking of gold and spices. Christianization of the native was an important goal but not an urgent one. The Spanish colonizers wanted to get rich first.
This bit of history was cited by Dr. Jesus P. Estanislao, in a forum on “Good Governance and Its Sustainability: Towards Dream Philippines”, last April 10, at Whitewoods Convention and Leisure Hotel in Silang Cavite.
