PBBM leaves for the US to strengthen connections on economic and food security

On a mission to forge stronger ties with the United States for various issues, including food security, the digital economy, energy security, and climate change, President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. left Manila on Sunday.

In his farewell address at the Villamor Air Base in Pasay City, the President stated that his trip to the US, a longtime ally, would strengthen the “already strong bonds” between Manila and Washington by “bringing our alliance into the 21st century.”

He declared that his trip to the US and, in particular, his meeting with President Joe Biden were crucial to furthering his country’s interests and fortifying that essential connection.

The US Vice President Kamala Harris visited Manila in November. According to Marcos, there have been numerous other visits by senior officials from both countries, who claimed that his visit builds on the “active exchanges” between the two nations, including the bilateral meeting between the Chief Executive and Biden in New York in September of last year.

Partnerships between Manila and Washington are anticipated to be strengthened in the semiconductor sector, critical minerals, renewable and clean energy, nuclear energy, and infrastructure projects “that will improve our digital and telecommunication systems and facilitate sustainability efforts to address climate change,” said Marcos.

He is also anticipated to further meet with American business executives to promote business and investment prospects in the Philippines.

Key members of the Philippine private sector will participate in the roundtable discussions with President Marcos to discuss business opportunities “that would serve to grow our economy even more.”

The President will meet with the Filipino community in Washington, “who continue to contribute towards the country’s economic prosperity.”

President Biden will reiterate the US’ “ironclad commitment to the defense of the Philippines,” according to a statement made by White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on April 20. The leaders will also discuss ways to fortify the longtime US-Philippines partnership. The two presidents will discuss ways to strengthen economic cooperation and advance inclusive prosperity, enhance the particular bonds between our two countries’ peoples, invest in the transition to sustainable energy and the fight against climate change, and ensure respect for human rights. The two leaders will also discuss regional matters, coordinate efforts to uphold international law, and promote a free and open Indo-Pacific.”
