Filipinos in Indonesia “warmly” welcomed Marcos.
According to a Palace representative on Monday, President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. was “warmly” welcomed by Filipinos in Indonesia.
Trixie Cruz-Angeles, the press secretary, reported on Facebook Live how much enjoyment the president experienced on Sunday when visiting with some 500 overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) at the Fairmont Hotel in Jakarta.
The Filipino population in Indonesia welcomed Marcos with cheers and applause, and many of them wanted to go up to him to shake his hand or take pictures.
While he was giving his speech, several supporters even shouted, “We love you, BBM!” The President laughed in response.
“Grabe, the beginning of your pagtanggap to me…” An example of this would be the Filipino people’s ability to properly prepare meals and clean up after themselves. As a result, their gracious reception was wonderful. I particularly missed getting to know and converse with fellow Filipinos who haven’t had the chance to visit their country in a while. Yesterday was so much fun,” Cruz-Angeles added.
She also gave the Filipino people assurances about the determination of the Marcos administration to improve travel and investment conditions in the Philippines and boost employment levels.
“Everything our President is doing is towards his goal to open and reenergize our economy,” she continued. “Lahat ng ginagawa ng ating Pangulo ay tungo sa kanyang vision para buksan at muling maging masigla ang ating ekonomiya.”
Cruz-Angeles advised people to finish their primary Covid-19 vaccine doses and booster shots while continuing to follow the minimal public health guidelines.
“Mag-iingat po ang lahat, I hope everyone is doing well. Huwag kakalimutan po kay Covid. Please exercise caution when engaging in the social distance and when engaging in your personal cycle of pagbabakuna and saka pag booster. Remember that Covid is still around. Don’t forget to follow social seclusion and finish the vaccination and booster cycle),” she said.
Cruz-Angeles is one of the Marcos delegation members that are now in Indonesia on a three-day state visit at President Joko Widodo’s invitation.
For the first meeting, Marcos and Widodo are anticipated to speak on the bilateral ties between the Philippines and Indonesia as well as the shifting global geopolitical landscape.
He will also be present as many agreements covering crucial areas of cooperation, such as military and security, the creative economy, and culture, are signed between the two nations.
