Statement: Press Secretary Ignacio R. Bunye on WEF

The Philippine economy benefits significantly from the active role our nation and our people play in the global economy.

In addition, our security interests are well-served by the engagement we have with governments in our region and around the world during the World Economic Forum sessions and in informal dialogues outside those meetings.

The investment made by the President's participation in the World Economic Forum will deliver benefits in terms of new trade and investment opportunities, increased development assistance and an increased role for our country in international economic and political affairs and that is also why she is in Dubai meeting with government and business leaders and our OFWs.

Global engagement is a fact of life for the Philippines and our goal is to make certain we maximize the benefits of that process. (
