Former US President Bill Clinton and Philippines President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III have talked about the poverty alleviation program of the Philippine government, according to a DZMM report.

The report said that Clinton is satisfied with the current poverty alleviation program of the PNoy administration, especially the conditional cash transfer (CCT) program. CCT is a program which aims to promote human capital development among poor families, especially children, to break the inter-generational cycle of poverty. Clinton expresses satisfaction with the CCT as this program is being practiced in other countries like Brazil, which registered a significant growth in its economy after the implementation of the CCT.

From the latest report of Abs-cbnnews.com, Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Abigail Valte announced using a Twitter account that Clinton arrived at Malacañang past 3 p.m. today.

Clinton visits the country to talk about “embracing our common humanity” and will focus on his advocacy of strengthening the interdependence of people all over the world. He is scheduled to deliver his speech at Rizal Park and Manila Hotel.
