MANILA, Philippines—A Royal Canadian Navy ship arrived in Manila Tuesday for a goodwill visit, the Philippine Navy said.

Her Majesty’s Canadian Ship (HMCS) Regina (FFH334) arrived at the Port of Manila about 1 p.m. The visit was part of “strengthening the diplomatic relation between the two countries,” said Philippine Navy spokesman Lieutenant Commander Gregory Gerald Fabic.

The ship, composed of 42 officers and 219 enlisted personnel, is led by Commander Jason Boyd.

The ship is docked at Pier 13 in South Harbor until Saturday.

“In this connection, Philippine Navy personnel and the ship’s crew will have professional exchange discussion and sports events. It will help enhance the skills and expertise and foster a bond of friendship among navies,” Fabic said.
