Barack Obama visits Philippines!

US President Barack Obama arrived in Manila Monday afternoon April 28, 2014, marking his first state visit to the Philippines.

According to the Malacañang, Obama and President Benigno Aquino III will discuss a range of concerns that are of “mutual” interest — from strengthening trade ties and other bilateral engagements to “augmenting mechanisms of security” in the Philippines through the newly signed Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement (EDCA).

The President will also host a state dinner for Obama “to show commitment to the deepening of their alliance, which serves as a foundation of prosperity and peace in the region.”
