Marcos anticipates a greater PH-US partnership in the future.

On Monday (Manila time), President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. expressed optimism about improving ties between the Philippines and the US.

Marcos expressed his enthusiasm for forging closer connections with the Philippines’ longtime ally during a speech at a New Jersey gathering with the Filipino community.

“Our bilateral relationship with the United States may be as crucial to Philippine policy as anything else. We continue to have great ties with the US and, in my opinion, will continue to do so in the years to come, he said.

Alongside the 77th session of the UN General Assembly, Marcos said he was looking forward to seeing US President Joe Biden and other world leaders (UNGA).

“Pagkatapos po ng mga malaking speech ay nagkikita-kita, mag-uusap-usap kami na bilateral, multilateral, kung ano pa mga iba’t ibang meeting (After the large speeches, we will have bilateral and multilateral discussions, and other meetings),” he remarked.

He claimed that Biden’s meeting was personally requested by his government.

“We requested for time with those attending the General Assembly because this is the chance for us to talk with them we can’t yet visit their countries,” he said. “Humingi kami ng panahon dito sa mga napunta rito para sa General Assembly napunta sila rito ay sabi ko pagkakataon at hindi natin sila mapupuntahan sa kanilang bansa.”

On the first day of the high-level General Debate on September 20, Marcos will have meetings with numerous heads of state and other UN figures.

At this year’s high-level General Debate, he will be the first representative of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations to make a statement.

In his speech to the UNGA, Marcos promised to discuss the Philippines’ “views on several global concerns” and the part it will play in addressing these issues as a responsible member of the international community.

He also intends to solicit large corporations and foreign investors to invest in the Philippines, particularly as that nation begins recovering from the pandemic.

The meetings will also be for potential investors and other business leaders in addition to those with the government leadership because we want to paahunin nga natin, passiglahin natin ang ekonomiya na makapag-invest at ‘pag nag-invest mayroong bagong negosyo. We need to invest in revitalizing the economy since new investments lead to the creation of new enterprises. Kapag may bagong negosyo, may trabaho We will create new employment if we have new firms, he said.
