MANILA – President Aquino confirmed his visit to China next week to attend the China-ASEAN Expo in Nanning City in Guangxi province.
In his speech at the Apolinario Mabini awards rite in Malacañang, Aquino also indicated that his visit would be a short one, lasting only for less than a day.
The Expo is scheduled to be held from September 3 to September 6.
“Bibiyahe ho tayo next week, mahaba hong biyahe sa China. Alis ho ako ng alas-singko ng umaga, balik ho ako ng alas-singko ng hapon (laughter). Ayaw nating ma-overstay ang welcome natin doon,” he said.
“Siyempre, parating na po ‘yung ASEAN at APEC…,” he added, referring to the upcoming ASEAN summit in Brunei and APEC summit in Bali, Indonesia.
