Another World Record For The Philippines: Blacklisted For Lack Of Transparency In Foreign Aid

imagePARIS, France (The Adobo Chronicles, Berlin Bureau) – Under the administration of President NoyNoy Aquino, the Philippines has received numerous accolades and has made it to the top of world records — from the economy to the Internet, not to mention several Guinness records.

The Philippines has just made the list of 17 countries blacklisted by the French government for lack of transparency on foreign aid and non-cooperation in investigating fraud.  As a result, the country will not benefit from French banks in as far as the distribution of development funds are concerned.

Aside from the Philippines, other countries blacklisted by the French government include Botswana, Brunei, Nauru, Guatemala, Switzerland, Lebanon, Panama, Costa Rica, the United Arab Emirates, Dominica, Liberia, Trinidad and Tobago and Vanuatu.

A spokesperson for President Aquino told The Adobo Chronicles  that “thanks to the efforts of this administration, the Philippines is becoming well known in the international community, and we’re not just talking about boxing and beauty pageants.”
