Continued cooperation between China and the Philippines on infrastructure, agriculture, and energy

According to the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, agriculture, infrastructure, energy, and cultural exchanges will be the main areas of cooperation between China and the Philippines during the Marcos administration.

The two countries agreed during Foreign Minister Wang Yi’s official visit to Manila last week, according to a statement from Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Wang Wenbin on July 15.

In order to strengthen their friendship and collaboration, Wang added, “the two sides decided to conduct cooperation in the four major sectors of large-scale agricultural, infrastructure, energy, and cultural and people-to-people exchanges.” “The Chinese side will support the Philippines in its efforts to achieve food self-sufficiency and agricultural modernization, strengthen traditional and high-tech infrastructure, and improve its energy structure, in order to generate more tangible benefits for the Filipino and Chinese people.”

According to him, China strongly emphasizes the “importance of viewing things from a strategic and overall perspective, setting aside conflicts, and using political wisdom to advance joint growth and make the pie of cooperation greater.”

“Both parties emphasized that bilateral relations go beyond the South China Sea dispute. We can’t afford to let small disagreements define our relationship or let individual conflicts prevent us from working together as a team “said Wang.

According to the diplomat, to find a “friendly” resolution to the problem and jointly maintain peace and stability in the South China Sea, the Philippine side “responded favorably and expressed readiness to carry out frank talks” with the Chinese side.

Wang paid courtesy calls to President Ferdinand Marcos Jr., Vice President Sara Duterte, Foreign Secretary Enrique Manalo, National Security Adviser Clarita Carlos, and other high-ranking government officials during his visit to the Philippines on July 5 and 6.
