EU lawmakers will visit PH: DFA

The Philippines has agreed to the European Parliament’s (EP) proposal to host a visit from the Subcommittee on Human Rights from February 22–24.

The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said in a statement on Monday that the visit represents increased communication and collaboration between the Philippines and the European Union.

According to the DFA, “relationships between the Philippines and the European Union (EU) and its members have progressively developed in terms of politics, economy, and security.” These connections are based on shared principles such as democracy and freedom, the rule of law, peace, and stability, and human rights as well as on common interests.

The opportunity for a significant expansion of commerce and investment between the Philippines and the EU was underscored by President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr.’s trip to Brussels in December for the ASEAN-EU Commemorative Summit.

They include the fact that the Philippines is anticipated to lead the regional economic recovery with an estimated annual growth forecast of 7% this year and the demographic “sweet spot” that underpins sustainable future growth in the country.

According to the DFA, “the EP’s visit is taking place in the context of the open and ongoing engagement between the Philippines and the EU on human rights, and the shared aim to further constructive dialogue and cooperation on human rights, including in the framework of the EU GO-JUST Program which supports and complements national reforms in the justice sector.”

The EU delegation in the Philippines claims that as part of its primary activity, the subcommittee travels to a number of countries each year using its own funds. The mission to Manila will be led by six EP members.

The group will meet with peers in the Senate and the House of Representatives while there to discuss legislation and best practices.

Moreover, the team will pay courtesy visits to Alfredo Pascual, secretary of trade and industry, and Jesus Remulla Jr., secretary of justice. Also, it will speak with executive agencies.
