MANILA, Philippines — Foreign Agricultural Service Administrator Daniel Whitley arrived in Manila on Monday for a US Department of Agriculture (USDA) trade mission that is seen to strengthen food security in the country and help foster stronger ties and build economic partnerships between the United States and the Philippines.

“The USDA Philippines trade mission will offer an abundance of opportunities for both the United States and the Philippines,” said Whitley in a statement released on Monday by the US Embassy in Manila.

“I’m confident the next few days will produce mutually beneficial results to help expand trade, increase collaboration on key issues impacting agriculture in both our countries, and ultimately strengthen Philippine food security,” he added.
