Aquino was scheduled to arrive at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 2 at 7:30 p.m. but arrived past 8:30 p.m., radio dzBB’s Sam Nielsen reported.
The report said the delay was due to bad weather conditions in Metro Manila earlier in the evening.
Earlier this week, Aquino attended the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Bali, and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations summit.
During his arrival statement, Aquino outlined the gains the Philippines got from the two trips.
With Aquino upon his arrival were Secretaries Albert del Rosario (Foreign Affairs), Gregory Domingo (Trade), Cesar Purisima (Finance), Arsenio Balisacan (Socio-economic Planning), Cabinet Secretary Jose Rene Almendras, Presidential Management Staff head Julia Abad, and Presidential Communications Secretary Ramon Carandang.
Government officials who welcomed Aquino at the NAIA included Secretaries Rosalinda Baldoz (Labor), Leila de Lima (Justice), Emilio Abaya (Transportation), and Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process Teresita Deles and Commission on Higher Education head Patricia Licuanan. — BM, GMA News
