Chinese State Councilor And Foreign Minister Wang Yi To Visit PH From 16 To 18 September

12 September 2018 – At the invitation of Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter S. Cayetano, Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi will undertake an Official Visit to the Philippines from 16 to 18 September 2018. The visit is aimed at further building on the increasingly strong foundation of friendship between the Philippines and China.

After a successful visit to China by the Philippine economic managers last month, this visit will again provide both sides an opportunity to take stock of infrastructure projects under the Philippine Government’s flagship Build, Build, Build program.

The two sides are also expected to continue discussions on oil and gas cooperation, with the view of coming up with a framework of cooperation that conforms to respective rules and regulations and international laws.

With continued dialogue and consultation anchored on mutual trust and respect, and the resolute pursuit of mutually beneficial practical cooperation, Philippines and China will continue to work together in managing differences and addressing issues pertaining to the West Philippine Sea/South China Sea.

As Secretary Cayetano remarked, “State Councilor Wang’s visit is a demonstration that our bilateral ties are becoming solid and steady as never before. The Philippines and China are both committed to continue on the path of cooperation, all the while ensuring that the Filipino and the Chinese peoples will reap the dividends of our mutual efforts.” END
