President Ferdinand Bong-Bong Marcos attended the ASEAN-EU Business Summit in Brussels with the goal of promoting economic cooperation and business opportunities between the Philippines and the European Union. As the leader of the Philippines, President Marcos is vesting interest in finding ways to strengthen the country’s economic ties with the EU and other countries around the world, and the ASEAN-EU Business Summit is providing an opportunity to do so. The 10th ASEAN-EU Business Summit’s theme is “Deepening ASEAN-EU Trade: Sustainable Development for All”.

According to EU-ASEAN Business Council, the European Union has poured millions of dollars in funding and technical assistance on various programmes, notably those that go towards ASEAN’s regional integration process and on climate change action. And, at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, the EU was a major donor of COVID-19 vaccines and other related support to Southeast Asia.

During President Marcos’ Closing Keynote of the business summit, he stipulated that strengthening of economic ties between ASEAN and EU members is a key to progress by exchanging ideas, products, technology, and manpower.
