NAY PYI TAW, Myanmar (Philippines News Agency) - President Rodrigo Duterte is scheduled to arrive here on Sunday for his first official visit to Myanmar.
Duterte is scheduled to meet with Myanmar President U Htin Kyaw to discuss the strengthening of bilateral relations between the Philippines and Myanmar.
"President Duterte’s visit to Myanmar is significant in many respects. In particular, the discussion will include talks on improving trade and investment relations," said Alex Chua, Philippine Ambassador to the Republic of the Union of Myanmar.
The official visit, which will be from March 19 to 20, will coincide with the celebration of the 60th anniversary of the establishment of Philippines-Myanmar bilateral relations.
"Commemorative activities have been held beginning last year and the president’s visit to Myanmar this year is the culmination of the celebration of this milestone in our friendly relations with Myanmar," said Chua.
According to the envoy, the Philippine president's visit to Myanmar, an ASEAN member country, symbolizes the Philippines’ commitment to the shared aspiration and values of ASEAN. This year, the Philippines chairs the ASEAN as the region celebrates the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the grouping.
During Duterte's visit, Chua said, a memorandum of understanding on food security and agricultural cooperation will be signed between the two governments.
Duterte will meet with key political figures in Myanmar. "President Duterte’s meeting with President U Htin Kyaw, Myanmar’s first civilian president in five decades, is a concrete manifestation of the Philippines’ continued support for countries in the region," Chua said.
