In a statement, Presidential Communications Operations Office Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. said: “The President spent a quiet and private New Year, taking a much needed rest and preparing for the great effort in 2014.”
Coloma cited the reconstruction of Zamboanga City and the areas that the earthquake and typhoons like Yolanda had devastated.
“Also in his must-do list is attaining the goal of inclusive economic growth that he considers to be the pivotal factor in transforming Philippine society,” he said.
