This Manila Star Is A Supernova

Thank you for "The stars of Asia" (Asian Edition Cover Story, July 3), which contained profiles of 50 Asian leaders "at the forefront of change." Reading through these records rekindled in me a brighter hope for the future of our region.

I am proud to see at least three Filipinos, particularly the former chairman of the Securities & Exchange Commission, Perfecto Yasay Jr., included on the Business Week list. Yasay is indeed the "public hero" every person working in government must emulate. I could not agree more with the editor who said, "Manila needs more regulators like him."
