Rest in power, Ma’am Aileen!

The academic community, no, the country suffered a great loss for losing one of its foremost experts on China. While your work may have ended now, your legacy will continue through the hundreds and thousands of students, analysts, strategic thinkers, and the hordes of specialists and experts you raised and graciously mentored!

They now have big shoes to fill but they’re stepping up to the challenge. Maraming salamat po sa inyong serbisyo sa UP at sa bayan!
