Treachery in Tejeros That means the data provided would be industry-specific, and not for the region as a whole.

Quirino had other contributions: The social security system started under him, along with the home financing system to help Filipinos buy their own homes and the land settlement and development corporation to help small farmers and tenants acquire their own land.
And his actions as chief executive, not just the legislation that his administration produced, are just as worthy of mention. I will concentrate on actions which ensured that he would lose his reelection bid in because it put the United States squarely against him: As vice president, he refused to give in to what the United States wanted with respect to the number of bases it wanted 70 and got 16, plus seven more in case of war and their location.

I think he is the only president that asked for this audit. And secondly, when he died, the only inheritance he left to his children was a house and lot in Novaliches which land he bought innot some palatial mansion closer to Manila.
