MANILA, Philippines—President Aquino has been named one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people of the world.

“The sputtering economy stabilized and became hot,” wrote Time news director Howard Chua-Eoan in the magazine’s profile of President Aquino, adding that Aquino

“pushed through a reproductive-rights law that many said was impossible in the fervently Catholic nation.”

Time also cited Aquino’s confrontation with Beijing over its claim to virtually all of the South China Sea. “It is a brave stance, given the long-term consequences still unknown.”

Aquino landed in the category of “Leaders” together with such leaders like US President Barrack Obama.
