Philippine President Benigno Aquino pledged to continue expanding the economy, while correcting the “wrongs of the past.” He spoke before state workers in Manila a day after the Senate started the impeachment trial of Chief Justice Renato Corona.

Aquino will meet with officials of mining companies, his spokesman, Edwin Lacierda, said in a briefing. Xstrata Plc and Indophil Resources NL’s Philippine venture on January 13 said its environmental clearance application for the $5.9 billion Tampakan project was denied. -By Joel Guinto
