Award For Governance
If there is indeed an award or recognition for best national governance or award for best governed countries, for sure the Philippines in its current status will not be included even as one of the nominees for there is no need to elaborate why.
However, on business corporate governance, the Philippines have greater chances of winning an international recognition as its homegrown Filipino business companies already making waves and great impressions internationally. The recent one is Meralco which has been recognized internationally as one of the Best in Asia on Corporate Governance for this year 2011.Wow; the most intrigued company in the Philippines by Filipinos themselves was recognized internationally as one of the best company in Asia that practices best and Excellent Corporate Governance.
The recognition was done by the Corporate Governance Asia which awards or recognized companies in Asia that displays excellence in terms of Corporate Governance.
I am wishing if national governance is only similar to Corporate governance perhaps the Philippines is now a progressive country with best and excellent management and man power resources because Filipinos are expert on Corporate Management or Corporate governance evidently certified by international recognition. Is not it?
But is national governance and corporate governance not the same, the only difference is corporate governance just focused on small business realm within a country while national governance concentrate on a larger scale of realm or territory? Moreover, the Business Company is owned by a single owner or even by two or more people while the country is owned by all who resides naturally within its lands and islands.
Realm/Territory = Business realm/Business company
Head of state = Chairman/President/Owner of the Business
Executive Secretary = Secretary of the Chairman/President
Senators/Judge = Board of Directors
Cabinet Staffs = Department Managers (like HR manager,
Marketing Manager, etc.)
Working Class = Working Class and Personnel
By the way, Meralco is the leading Energy company in the Philippines that provides electricity on Metro Manila area of the Philippines.
