Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, November 19) — President Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr. on Saturday said he has received more invitations for state visits following his meetings with world leaders at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit in Thailand.

"What countries have invited me? All. What countries will I accept? All," Marcos told reporters in a briefing.

The president, in particular, cited his conversations with officials of France, Saudi Arabia, Australia, New Zealand, and Vietnam.

However, he noted that his team will still have to fix his schedule before making such commitment.

"I have to go back to Manila, at marami rin kaming kailangang ayusin at tapusin (we still have a lot to fix and finish)," he said.

Earlier this month, the Department of Foreign Affairs said Marcos would be attending the ASEAN-EU Summit in Brussels, Belgium. He is also set to visit China in January upon the invitation of President Xi Jinping.

Marcos flew to Indonesia and Singapore earlier this year for his inaugural trips as chief executive.
