I have sent the following message to President Aquino:
" On behalf of the Australian Government and people, I
should like to convey our profound sympathy for the heavy
loss of life and damage to property caused by the severe
earthquake that hit the Philippines on 16 July.
Australia stands ready to assist those who have suffered
in this disaster.
All Australians hope that the process of reconstruction
can be completed as soon as possible and that those who
have been affected by this tragedy can quickly resume
their normal lives.
Bob Hawke"
