WASH­ING­TON: Ms. Chris­tine La­garde, Manag­ing Di­rec­tor of the In­ter­na­tional Mone­tary Fund (IMF), made the fol­low­ing state­ment to­day in Manila at the end of her visit to the Philippines: It is a great plea­sure to re­turn again to Asia—one of the world’s most dy­namic and in­no­va­tive re­gions. I am es­pe­cially grate­ful for the op­por­tu­nity to visit the Philippines, my first visit as Manag­ing Di­rec­tor of the IMF. I had the priv­i­lege to meet with Vice Pres­i­dent Je­jo­mar Binay, Fi­nance Sec­re­tary Ce­sar Purisima, Deputy Gover­nor Diwa Guini­gundo and other se­nior of­fi­cials from the gov­ern­ment and Bangko Sen­tral ng Pilip­inas (BSP). I also had the op­por­tu­nity to speak to students at the Asian In­sti­tute of Man­age­ment, and meet with var­i­ous busi­ness lead­ers, in­clud­ing out­stand­ing women lead­ers. I was in­spired by their op­ti­mism and de­sire to con­trib­ute to the Philip­pine econ­omy and so­ci­ety.
