MANILA, Philippines – President Benigno Aquino III, in his 2012 Christmas message, thanked Filipinos for cultivating a culture of honesty and compassion.

The President gave credit to Filipinos for the government’s successful projects, including the conditional cash transfer program.

“Malinaw po: Ang bawat butil ng tagumpay na ating inaani ay nagmula sa ipinunlang pagsusumikap ng sambayanan. Kayo po, ang aming mga boss, ang gumawa nito. Lahat ng ito'y sumasalamin sa tunay na diwa ng Kapasuhan: Pagbibigayan, pagpapakumbaba, at pagmamahal sa ating kapwa,” he said.

Cabinet members also joined the President in the 3-minute video, uploaded on YouTube on Friday, to give their greeting.
