President Aquino leaves for US-ASEAN summit in California.
President Benigno S. Aquino III has vowed to further solidify the Philippines’ stand for the peace process during his attendance in the two-day ASEAN-US Leaders’ Summit in the United States this week.
The Summit, to be held in Sunnylands, California, aims to strengthen the cooperation among the members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations and the US.
President Aquino is also scheduled to speak before the Los Angeles World Affairs Council (LAWAC), which he said is an honor since his father, former Senator Benigno S. Aquino Jr., also served as its speaker in 1981.
He is also set to meet with representatives of Disney, and with this he is very optimistic on its impact on the country’s economy in the future.
The President is scheduled to return to the country on Friday.
