“In addition to pursuing ASEAN’s interests as country coordinator for the EU, I will always certainly push for Philippine priorities within the context of the ASEAN-EU cooperation particularly in post-pandemic economic recovery and trade, maritime cooperation, and of course, climate action,” ayon sa Pangulo.

“Although I am representing the Philippines, I am now also representing all of ASEAN but nonetheless, as I have mentioned, Philippine interests will always enter into all of my discussions,” dagdag na wika nito.

Nakatakdang dumalo si Pangulong Marcos sa 10th ASEAN-EU Business Summit, bukas Disyembre 13, at ASEAN-EU Commemorative Summit sa Disyembre 14.

Sa nasabing byahe ng Pangulo, nakatakda itong magdraos ng bilateral talks sa kanyang counterparts mula sa European countries, at makipagpulong sa Filipino community sa Belgium.
