MANILA, Philippines — President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. on Tuesday said that the Philippines and Brunei will sign a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to bolster the tourism sector.

Marcos is in Brunei for a two-day state visit, where he will meet with Brunei Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah and other government and business leaders.


“During this trip to Brunei, we will sign the Philippines-Brunei Darussalam MOU on Tourism Cooperation, and through this MOU, we hope to entice and attract Bruneian tourists to explore the Philippines. Brunei, despite having a relatively small population, it is the quality of tourists and not the quantity that counts,” said Marcos in his departure ceremony in Villamor Airbase, Pasay City.

According to Marcos, the MOU is one of the key priorities from the  3rd Philippines-Brunei Joint Commission for Bilateral Cooperation.

Marcos said that the partnership with Brunei will help bolster political, economic, and people-to-people ties.

“I look forward to securing investments that will generate more jobs, contribute to poverty alleviation, and accelerate the economic transformation of our country,” added the President.
