Philippines to hold talks with Japan over infrastructure finance

Japan and the Philippines are set to hold a high-level meeting that will tackle infrastructure development and economic cooperation on February 16. The 12th high-level meeting, which will be conducted via teleconferencing, will centre on the status of the big-ticket projects that Japan has supported. These projects include the Metro Manila Subway Project, North-South Commuter Railway Project, and Central Mindanao Highway Project, among others. Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez III will chair the Philippine side while Mori Masafumi, the Special Advisor to Prime Minister Fumio Kishida of Japan, will lead the Japanese delegation in the meeting. The first meeting of the high-level committee was held in March 2017 in Tokyo.
