Let’s have more good news for this stormy day:
Filipino economist makes it in the global finance world
HE may not be as famous (yet) as a rock star or top chef Cristeta Comerford (the Fil-Am chef at the White House), but Dr. Eli Remolona is at the top of his game. Currently the chief representative for Asia and the Pacific of the Bank for International Settlements (the central bank of central banks), Dr. Remolona is considered to be the most prominent Filipino economist in international monetary and financial policy circles. Based in Hong Kong, he deals with the 12 most important economies in the Asia-Pacific region (Read the rest of the story at Inquirer.net).
The Filipinos –through Manny Pacquiáo, Batista, Nicole Scherzinger, Efren “Batà” Reyes, Cristeta Comerford, Allan Pineda Lindo (apl.de.ap) Onel de Guzmán (!), Charice Pempengco, and now Dr. Eli Remolona– are taking over the world!
Again, kudos to our new “monster economist”, Dr. Remolona! Despite the financial crisis, you did an awesome job! c”,)
