Philippine president Marcos' visit to Japan offers a chance to boost exports


Philippine Foreign Affairs Assistant Secretary for Asia and Pacific Affairs Nathaniel Imperial said President Ferdinand Marcos’ working visit to Japan will give the country a chance to further boost exports. Imperial said Marcos is expected to sign seven key bilateral deals covering infrastructure, defence, and tourism, among others, during his trip to Japan next week. The Philippine government is set to sign the exchange of notes on loan agreements involving USD3bn that will be later signed also by the Department of Finance. Imperial said the government hopes that the working visit would give Philippine agricultural exports, especially bananas and Hass avocados, better market access in Japan. Marcos will also be meeting with CEOs of Japanese shipping companies and associations to advance partnerships with Philippine stakeholders in maritime education and welfare programmes for seafarers.
