Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, September 11) — President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. will travel to Singapore this week where he is set to attend a meeting with economic managers and business leaders at the 10th Asian Conference on September 13.

The Asia Summit 2023 will focus on issues about peace and stability, inequality, cultural differences, and irreparable environmental damage, the Presidential Communications Office said in a statement Monday.

The statement added Marcos will headline “A Conversation with the President of the Republic of the Philippines,” a 30-minute talk where he will discuss the administration's efforts in "improving the lives of Filipinos amid challenges from significant global events."

Marcos will be the first sitting Philippine President to address the Milken Institute’s Asia Summit, said the PCO.

While in Singapore, Marcos will also meet with business leaders to strengthen economic ties and build partnerships.

The PCO added the president was also invited by Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong to attend the finals of the Formula One Singapore Grand Prix 2023.
