MANILA, APRIL 22, 2013 (YAHOO ASIA) By Kim Arveen Patria | Yahoo! Southeast Asia Newsroom
President Benigno Aquino III joined this year’s 100 Most Influential People in the World by Time Magazine, a recognition which Malacanang said shows the Philippines’ improved standing in the eyes of the world.
This is Aquino’s first time on the so-called “Time 100” which is now on its tenth year. The list honors people in the world who are “being innovative” and “making a difference,” the magazine’s executive editor Radhika Jones said.
Aquino was among the 23 top influencers categorized as “leaders” in the list published online late Thursday, which included four other groups–titans, pioneers, icons and artists.
