She's speaking LIVE right now at the closing of the ASEAN Business and Investment Summit.

US President Trump already left Manila at 3:15PM. He didn't attend the East Asia Summit and instead send State Secretary Tillerson on his behalf due to delay in program schedule. He, however read his prepared remarks for EAS during lunch with the other leaders.

A gathering of world leaders. The Philippines hosted a special gala celebration last night for the ASEAN 2017 golden jubilee.

I like the backdrop of white parols. Very simple, classy, christmassy, (-ber month already), very unique, very Pinoy with universal appeal. Cheers to the people who did that.

Nandun naman si Tillerson eh saka nasabi naman niya ang sasabihin niya during the luncheon. Medyo mahirap ding ayusin ang schedules kasi kanya-kanyang bilats yung mga leaders kaya naghihintayan pa kapag oras na ng summits. May ibang related summits na foreign ministers na ang dumalo. Sa ASEAN-EU summit nga wala ang PM ng SG at yung foreign minister nito ang dumalo. Sa ASEAN-India summit wala rin si Sultan Bolkiah ng Brunei at foreign minister niya ang dumalo. Yung Laos PM naman nauna nang umuwi noong Monday night at iniwan na ang foreign minister niya kasi may magii-state visit sa bansa niya.

Duterte’s assistant is a selfie king, and nailed his shot with Trump
Quote:
MANILA — Christopher Lawrence Go is special assistant to Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte. He is also a something of a selfie savant known for snapping pictures of himself with just about every person he meets — with or without their permission.

At a meeting of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations in Manila this week, Go, who goes by the nickname “Bong Go,” had the opportunity to meet a lot of famous people. Did he rise to the occasion? Yes, he did.

On Monday, shortly after President Trump met with Duterte for high-stakes discussion that may or may not have included human rights, Go published a trove of snaps, including a doozy of a portrait with the U.S. president.
Quote:
Among Filipinos, Go is famous for inserting himself in pictures of people who do not know he is there. The Philippine press dubbed him the “national photobomber.”

And it's not just about his smug mug. With press access limited, Go sometimes gives the world its first or only glimpse of what goes on behind close doors at high-level meetings. Over the weekend, he dutifully posted the first photograph of Duterte and Trump.

Yup. Apparently the NZ PM found it also itchy. They could have used cotton barong rather than pina.

Duterte ends his colourful Asean lead role
Quote:
Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has upended regional diplomacy and his country's ties with major powers. He put Asean on the map on par with the superpowers during the past 429 days to be exact, from Sept 8, 2016 to today. He will pass the baton to Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Wednesday.
Quote:
The dramatic improvement of Philippine-China ties also has rendered positive impacts on overall Asean-China cooperation over the ongoing negotiations on the code of conduct in the South China Sea. Even though China has rejected the PCA's decision, it would continue to serve as an invisible barometer regarding China's behaviour in regional and international politics. Lest we forget, at the 49th Asean Foreign Ministerial Meeting in Laos in July 2016, hot on the heels of the PCA's judgement, and at the 28th Asean summit in Laos last year, Asean deliberately embedded the full respect for legal and diplomatic process as the norm to conduct ties with China.
Despite Mr Duterte's tough talks, he displayed flexibility. Putting aside his personal grudge against the EU's severe criticism of his anti-drug measures throughout his administration, he was level-headed enough to issue an invitation to EU President Donald Tusk to attend the East Asia Summit (EAS), which is scheduled for today.

With Da Man publicly making known he was personally offended and insulted by Justin Trudeau's remarks on HR, seems like no more Manila trip for him for the next 5 years.

Let's see their body language on their future international meetups next year.

EDITORIAL - Finally, full implementation?
(The Philippine Star) | Updated November 15, 2017 - 12:00am

Quote:
After more than two years in legal limbo, it looks like the reproductive health law may finally be fully implemented. Republic Act 10354, enacted on Dec. 21, 2012, took effect on Jan. 17, 2013. But after their defeat in Congress, opponents of the Responsible Parenthood and Reproductive Health Act took their 14-year legislative battle to the Supreme Court, which granted them one of its anything-but-temporary restraining orders on June 2015.

Covered by the TRO were contraceptives that the Department of Health had procured and intended to distribute to public health centers. The high court later clarified that its TRO covered only two contraceptive implants – Implanon and Implanon NXT – which RH opponents claim are abortifacient.

The Department of Health, however, interpreted the TRO differently, noting that the Supreme Court had also stopped the Food and Drug Administration from approving applications for the registration and recertification of contraceptives. The DOH sent 51 contraceptives to the FDA for testing.


President Duterte, who had included reproductive health in his 10-point socioeconomic agenda, had to issue an executive order in January this year to sidestep the TRO, but the court order continued to deprive millions of women of access to RH services.

Now the FDA has certified all 51 contraceptives, including the implants, as safe and not abortifacient. The SC said the FDA certification automatically ends the TRO, but an appeal may be filed; the FDA must make sure the process does not crawl along for another two years.

If an appeal doesn’t work, the hypocrites in the Senate who oppose the RH law but support the restoration of the death penalty are vowing to take the fight to the budget process. The legal battle has made the country fail to meet reproductive health targets under the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. Contraceptives purchased by the DOH are set to expire, and replacements will be procured at the expense of taxpayers. President Duterte should use his immense popularity to make his congressional allies show their support for his socioeconomic agenda. The RH law has been stalled long enough.

Pres. Duterte mulls more investment from India on cheaper meds
November 14, 2017, 8:08 am

Quote:
MANILA -- President Rodrigo Duterte on Monday, November 13, said he is mulling more investments from India, particularly in the manufacture of cheaper medicine.

President Duterte held a bilateral meeting with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the sidelines of the 31st Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit.

“We want to discuss trade relations further and especially, the most important one is that… and I’m happy that you’re here because of we can’t find the medicines, and you have it and it is [in] India [where] people who [can] really afford to buy it,” President Duterte said.

He said there might be Indian investors who may be interested in seeking a business venture in the Philippines in producing more affordable medicines.

“We would [be] happy to see you building an investment that would include the medicines,” Duterte said.

The President also lauded the Indian-made Mahindra cars, which are being used by the Philippine National Police (PNP).

“It’s the one that’s being used and there are a lot of them… almost 1,000 and it’s good and it’s being used now. They are outside, they are guarding this place,” Duterte said.

“These are the things that would interest us really. There’s just a need for us to talk further and I might just send my Secretary of Finance and Agriculture Secretary, and the Department of Trade, and the Department of Health,” he said.

“And if there is an investor that could be interested, an Indian citizen of yours who would want to venture in our place, we would be happy,” Duterte said.

For his part, Indian Prime Minister Modi thanked President Duterte for the hospitality extended to him and his delegation, noting that it is his first time to visit the Philippines and his first time to have a bilateral meet with President Duterte.

He also thanked the President for including the music of Indian artist Rama Hari during the program at the opening ceremony of the 31st ASEAN Summit.

“With this particular program, you have touched the hearts of the Indian people and you have won their hearts,” Modi said.

PH ready to expand ties with Russia
November 14, 2017, 8:14 am



Quote:
MANILA -- President Rodrigo Duterte expressed the Philippines' willingness to expand relations with Russia particularly in area of trade.

“We have started an improvement of our friendship and the plan increases of our trade, expand it and I know that your country is seriously considering all of these things and we are happy that we can find a new market in the Euro -- Eurasian front,” President Duterte said in his opening remarks during his bilateral meeting with Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev on Monday, November 13.

In a bid to boost trade relations, Duterte said the government intends to set up a place in Moscow where Filipinos can showcase their products for the Russians to see them.

The President also thanked Russia for its assistance on a “crucial moment” during the rebellion in Marawi City. “We were able to use the rifles and the arms that you gave us on time,” he said.

Last month, Russian donated 5,000 units of AK-74M Kalashnikov assault rifles and one million units 1943-type cartridges with steel core bullets.

The President also brought up the topic of two Russian nationals namely Yuri Kirdyushkin and Anastasia Novopashina, who are currently detained in the Philippines due to drug-related charges.

“I would just like to say that we have a working functional justice system here and they will get a fair trial and that they will be detained in a comfortable house ,” he said, noting that their cases are still under investigation.

“Whether true or not, we will find out but I will see to it that they are treated fairly," he added.

In response, Prime Minister Medvedev said Russia is likewise ready to expand its ties with the Philippines in the areas of politics, cultural, trade and economic cooperation.

Medvedev said Russia is also willing to boost cooperation in fight against terrorism and extremism. He noted that Russia is willing to supply more weapons for the Philippines in order to maintain peace and order.

“We'll keep standing by your side. We’ll keep assisting you," said Medvedev.

He then congratulated Philippines for its successful hosting of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).

He thanked Duterte for accommodating them in a late night bilateral meeting despite his very busy schedule in the ASEAN saying that it "points to a new level of partnership" between the two nations.

Following the bilateral meeting, the two leaders witnessed the signing of nine agreements including the Treaty on Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters; Treaty on Extradition; Memorandum of Understanding on Cooperation between the Department of Energy and the State Atomic Energy Corporation “Rosatom” of the Russian Federation; Memorandum of Understanding on Cooperation in the Field of Mass Communications; Memorandum of Understanding on the Development of Cooperation in Transport Education; Memorandum of Understanding between the Commission on Higher Education of the Republic of the Philippines and the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation; Memorandum of Understanding between the Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines and the Federal Service for Intellectual Property of the Russian Federation; Agreement on Cooperation between the Commission on Audit of the Republic of the Philippines and the Accounts Chamber of the Russian Federation; and Agreement of Cooperation and Partnership between Philippine company Vi Holding LLC and Russian company Global Ferronickel Holdings Inc.

Pres. Duterte urges SoKor to invest more in PH
November 14, 2017, 6:33 am



Quote:
MANILA -- President Rodrigo Duterte on Monday, November 13, urged South Korean investors to further increase trade and investment in the Philippines.

In his bilateral meeting with Republic of Korea President Moon Jae-in, President Duterte urged South Korean investors to further strengthen cooperation in the area of trade, whether exports or imports.

President Duterte extended his invitation to South Korea to further invest in manufacturing, automotive, food production, processing, agribusiness, electronics and energy.

He also expressed his gratitude to South Korea for its imports of Philippine products into South Korea, particularly in the areas of personal care and other organic products, food and seafood, garments and chemicals and other electronic parts.

For his part, South Korean President Moon expressed hopes that he could enhance Korea-ASEAN relations “to the highest level,” noting that he dispatched a Special Envoy to ASEAN following his inauguration.

“I wish to further strengthen our ties with the Philippines, our long-time friend,” Moon said.

President Moon meanwhile noted that there are about 1.5 million Korean tourists who visit the Philippines annually.

“It's a great pleasure that our two peoples are deepening mutual understanding and friendship through close exchanges. And I hope that we could make joint efforts to further strengthen this trend,” he said.

“Among ASEAN nations, we have the most mutual people-to-people exchanges with the Philippines,” he added.

“Mr. President, I ask for your attention and support so that the Koreans who visit and reside in the Philippines can have a safe and enjoyable stay,” Moon said.

PH, New Zealand forge ties on education
November 15, 2017, 7:13 am


New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and President Rodrigo Duterte hold a bilateral meeting on November 14, 2017.

Quote:
MANILA -- President Rodrigo Duterte and New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on Tuesday, November 14, witnessed the signing of a Memorandum of Cooperation that would strengthen Philippines – New Zealand ties in the field of education.

The signing of the Memorandum of Cooperation was held during the bilateral meeting between the two leaders following the 31st ASEAN Summit here in Manila.

The two leaders witnessed the signing of the Memorandum of Cooperation between the New Zealand Qualifications Authority and the Philippines Commission on Higher Education on the Comparative Analysis of New Zealand and the Philippines’ Bachelor’s Degrees.

It was signed by Commission on Higher Education (CHED) chairperson Patricia Licuanan and New Zealand Ambassador to the Philippines David Strachan.

President Duterte said it is a “good development,” noting that more Filipinos can have access to the quality of education in New Zealand.

During the bilateral meeting, President Duterte mentioned that New Zealand is host to more than 50,000 Filipinos, to which Prime Minister Ardern said that “the Filipino community is a strong community in New Zealand."

“It’s a strong, buoyant community and well-loved,” she said.

Ardern added that New Zealand had its first Filipino candidate in their party, Romeo Udanga, to be a member of Parliament during the last election.“He did a phenomenal job. He was fantastic,” Ardern said.

President Duterte meanwhile told Prime Minister Ardern that he was able to visit New Zealand twice, and that the people of New Zealand are great people.

“Auckland treats its citizens superbly. No doubt about it. I was there,” Duterte said.

Ardern meanwhile said she was pleased to know that there will soon be a direct flight to New Zealand.

“I was very pleased today that there has been an announcement that Philippine Airlines will be flying direct to New Zealand starting in December which will be a fantastic opportunity,” Ardern said.

Meanwhile, the New Zealand Prime Minister said she is looking at bolstering trade relations between New Zealand and the Philippines.

“I’m also looking at the two-way trade that we have, a billion dollars. It’s impressive but [there’s] always more opportunity. But I think we have a strong foundation economically,” she said.

Pres. Duterte announces landmark outcomes of PH ASEAN Summit hosting
November 15, 2017, 6:50 am

Quote:
MANILA -- President Rodrigo Duterte reported a productive conclusion of the 31st ASEAN Summit and Related Summits on Tuesday, November 14, announcing landmark outcomes of the meetings during the Philippines’ hosting.

President Duterte noted the highlights of the Summit such as the start of talks for a Code of Conduct in the South China Sea and the signing of a Consensus on the Protection of the Rights of Migrant Workers.

“Yesterday, during the 20th ASEAN-China Summit, we announced the start of formal negotiations on a Code of Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea,” President Duterte said, announcing the negotiations on the Code of Conduct (COC) in the South China Sea.

“Just a few moments ago, the other ASEAN Leaders joined me in signing the ASEAN Consensus on the Protection and Promotion of the Rights of Migrant Workers – our commitment to our people,” he said.

The President said that China has graciously agreed for the crafting of a binding COC, promising unbridled freedom of overflight and navigation in the busy waterway.

The President reported that the ASEAN held successive summits with its Dialogue Partners as well as the ASEAN-led mechanisms --- the ASEAN Plus Three and the East Asia Summit, noting the importance of cooperation in addressing issues that affect the peace, security, and prosperity of the region.

President Duterte also chaired and hosted the first meeting of the Leaders of the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), wherein, along with the other leaders, he expressed resolve to realize a substantial conclusion of negotiations on the economic instrument.

The leaders also had two business council meetings -- the ASEAN Business Advisory Council and the East Asia Business Council.

“We looked at the progress of our cooperation with external partners and the future direction of ASEAN’s engagement with them, noting the importance of ASEAN centrality, and the reality that relations bear fruit if cooperation is anchored on mutual respect and benefit,” the President said.

Threats of terrorism overshadowed discussions In the press conference, the President said the issue of terrorism loomed large in the agenda of the talks with ASEAN leaders and their dialogue partners.

“Half of the time during the interventions actually was the issue of terrorism. Everybody’s scared with the new vogue of dying just suddenly in the explosion of any… whatever,” President Duterte said.

“We vowed to work closely. We discussed it in confidential meetings. We have agreed on so many things to enhance the defense of our country.”

He said the attack in Marawi City by the ISIS-linked Maute group is a stark reminder of the risks each country face, with all the leaders mentioning the heroism of Filipino soldiers and policemen who fought the terrorists.

The rising tension in the Korean Peninsula was also a major topic for the talks, particularly in the discussions involving China and the US, the President said, adding that the region cannot afford to ignite a very disastrous war.

As the 31st ASEAN Summit and Related Summits draw to a close, the President led the symbolic turnover of the ASEAN chairmanship to Singapore.

President Duterte also expressed his gratitude to the press who gave extensive coverage of the country’s hosting of the 31st ASEAN Summit.

“Before I close, I wish to express my appreciation to the members of the media for your coverage throughout the year of the Philippines’ Chairmanship of ASEAN,” he said.

“You have been [our] invaluable partners in raising ASEAN awareness to our peoples, particularly our hard work toward improving the lives of our peoples and in strengthening our ASEAN Community. I thank you for getting that message across to the public,” Duterte said.

With the country’s ASEAN hosting this year which coincides with the regional grouping’s 50th founding anniversary, the President said, “We are honored that world leaders joined us in celebrating ASEAN’s achievements and contributions to [regional] peace, stability, and prosperity for the past 50 years.”

The country’s hosting has a theme of “Partnering for Change, Engaging the World.”
