Pinoys trust Americans most due to long-standing relations with US

Department of National Defense (DND) Secretary Delfin Lorenzana attributed the result of a survey showing Filipinos trust Americans the most to the country’s long association and relationship with the United States.

Last month, a Pulse Asia survey revealed overwhelming results that point to the US as the most trusted country by Filipinos.

“That is understandable considering our long association and relationship with the USA. A lot of Filipinos studied there, a lot worked there and a lot have relatives there. Compared to other countries, USA have the most number of Filipino migrants,” Lorenzana noted recently.

The US is also the only treaty ally of the Philippines.

Of the 1,800 Filipinos surveyed by Pulse Asia from December 14 to 21, 84 percent said the Philippines should extend a fair amount of trust to the US.#
