Pinoy seafarer education, welfare in Marcos Jr.’s Japan trip 7 key agendas

PRESIDENT Marcos Jr. is set to go on an official visit to Japan on February 8 to 12 during which at least seven key agreements between Manila and Tokyo will be signed along with several business deals, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said yesterday. The trip, according to DFA Assistant Secretary for Asian and Pacific Affairs Neal Imperial, is expected to reaffirm strong relations between the Philippines and Japan. It will be Marcos’ first visit to Japan, since becoming president, and his second face-to-face-meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida whom he met last year on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in the United States.
