What People Are Saying

Alexander Haig
Speaker de Venecia has played a key role in the Philippine economic resurgence."--(Alexander Haig, U.S. Secretary of State, 1981-1982)
Fidel V. Ramos
"In the pantheon of Philippine democracy which is the oldest in Asia, Speaker de Venecia will reside with those others from the past who spent their lives taking our government to a higher plain. This is because he has nurtured a vision of greatness that beholds a more prominent leadership role for the Philippines on the world stage. It is an inspiring vision, and how he arrived there is an interesting story. In this biography, Brett M. Decker reveals knowledge of the Philippines and devotion to his subject that are only surpassed by Joe de Venecia's own passion for a better Philippines. Global Filipino is a great read about a patriotic Filipino, and I endorse them both with enthusiasm."--(Fidel V. Ramos, President of the Philippines, 1992-1998)
Estrada Joseph Ejercito
"Jose de Venecia will certainly go down as one of the great Speakers in the history of the [Philippine] Congress. His many successful initiatives in the wider field of regional politics make him one of Asia's leading contemporary statesmen. This biography by Brett Decker is about a man who has constantly reinvented himself to meet the challenges of ever-changing times. Even more important, in the overall way the world works, Jose de Venecia is a good man-and that, I think, is a true testament to character in our rough-and-tumble profession of politics."--(Joseph Ejercito Estrada, President of the Philippines, 1998-2001)
