Former Foreign Affairs (DFA) Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano announced last August in an interview that the Chinese President is set to visit the country this year but that the dates aren’t confirmed yet.

This is the first time the President Jinping will visit the country under President Rodrigo Duterte’s administration but with this visit also comes the criticism as the country have issues with the Chinese government about the territorial areas in the West Philippine Sea. It’s also a historic visit of the President since his state visit to the country is the first for a Chinese President after 13 years.
