President Benigno S. Aquino III and his administration will continue exerting best efforts to further move the country forward.
Presidential Communications Operations Office Secretary Herminio Coloma has given this assurance, noting one impetus for this is the positive trust rating President Aquino sustained throughout his first 100 days in office.
"This will serve as an inspiration for us to further exert efforts," he said.
President Aquino will end his first 100 days in Malacanang this week after assuming the nation's highest post on June 30.
Coloma noted that surveys of the State-run Philippine Information Agency Save (PIA) last week and private firm Social Weather Stations (SWS) affirmed continuing public trust and confidence in President Aquino.
He said PIA's trust survey shows its 629 respondents gave Mr. Aquino top scores on a scale of one to four with the latter representing the highest.
Some 59 percent and 10 percent of respondents scored the President three and four, respectively, he noted.
PIA's survey covered respondents from business, the judiciary, labor, agriculture and other sectors, Coloma said.
He also said SWS' latest presidential trust survey shows President Aquino garnered from respondents concerned a net satisfaction rating of +60 percent.
"We have basis to say people still rate the President high," he said.
He noted employment is among concerns the PIA respondents wants Malacanang to address.
This week, President Aquino announced adapting strategies to improve the country's employment situation.
He launched the government's national skills registry system to help facilitate prospective employers' search for people with competencies they require.
Mr. Aquino also ordered the Department of Labor and Employment to enhance guidance on students' best career options so they can land jobs after school.
Government will also revive its emergency employment program, he said. (PNA/ PIA ZC).
