PBBM arrives in US for trilateral meeting with Japan, US

President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. arrived in Washington, DC Wednesday night (US time) along with members of the Philippine delegation for the trilateral meeting with the United States and Japan.

The plane carrying President Marcos arrived at around 7:47pm pm at John Base Andrews in Maryland where he was warmly welcomed by Philippine Embassy and US officials.

President Marcos is embarking on a two-day working visit, mainly for the trilateral meeting with US President Joe Biden and Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida to enhance the economic and maritime cooperation of the three countries.

Before leaving Manila, President Marcos said his visit to the US will build upon his previous meetings with Prime Minister Kishida and US Vice President Kamala Harris in September last year in Jakarta, Indonesia.

President Marcos said he also intends to explore ways of advancing cooperation, especially in the areas of critical infrastructure, semiconductors, digitalization and cybersecurity, among others.

The chief executive will also meet with business leaders in the US to invite them to invest in the Philippines. PND
