Indeed, the Philippines as a sovereign country, being Asia’s first republic, with its central location in the Far East, and dubbed as the “Crossroads of the Pacific”, and the “Pearl of the Orient Seas” has become the rendezvous of the East and West; the melting pot, that people from different parts of the globe look forward to visit in order to be part of the international event of the “Gusi Peace Prize”. After all, GUSI stands for Godliness, Unification, Service, and Internationalism.
