PH, China continue to bolster ties

MANILA The Philippines and the People's Republic of China have continued to develop stronger ties through cultural exchanges.

The China International Publishing Group (CIPG) recently met with representatives from the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO). The CIPG is the largest foreign-language publishing organization in China, providing up-to-date information about China to readers worldwide through books, magazines, and the internet.

Both countries are looking forward to the implementation of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) before 2019 ends.

The MOU contains relevant possibilities and plans between the two countries.

Philippine President Rodrigo Roa Duterte and Chinese President Xi Jinping previously agreed to elevate bilateral relations during Xi's first state visit to the Philippines in November 2018.

In April, President Duterte is set to attend the second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation in Beijing to be accompanied by PCOO Secretary Martin Andanar.

Moreover, Office of the Global Media Affairs (OGMA) chief JV Arcena explained his office's function to engage with international media and Filipinos abroad.

OGMA ensures that the Philippine government has a voice in international countries, promoting the Duterte administration's programs and policies. (PR)
