AFTER a successful three-day trip to Indonesia, President Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr. is in Singapore for another state visit.

The Chief Executive and his delegation landed at the Changi Airport at 12:45 p.m. on Tuesday.

Marcos previously shared he would be meeting with Singaporean President Halimah Yacob and Prime Minister Lee Shien Loong where he would renew the Philippines' commitment "to deepen bilateral relations, explore options for advancing our economic ties, as well as discuss regional and global issues."

The President's first order of business during his two-day visit was his meeting with the Filipino community at the National University of Singapore.

The city-state is home to around 200,000 Filipinos.

The President earlier expressed his gratitude to Singapore for how it "welcomed and allowed our Filipino nationals to assimilate into their society, into their economy, and into their daily lives."

Serving as the highlight of his trip would be his meetings with Yacob and Loong today before he flies back to Manila.

Marcos and Loong are set to witness the signing of several bilateral agreements, among them a memorandum of understanding on cooperation and personal data protection.

The said deal will be signed by the National Privacy Commission and the Personal Data Protection Commission of Singapore.

Following his face-to-face with the Singaporean leaders, Marcos will attend the Philippine economic briefing hosted by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas and the Department of Finance, and a roundtable discussion to be led by the Department of Trade and Industry before flying back to Manila.

"Singapore has become the Philippines' top trading partner in Asean (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) and the top source of approved investments in 2021," he earlier said.

"Our economic cooperation with Singapore has grown by leaps and bounds for the past half-century, and more opportunities are just waiting to be tapped by both sides," he added.
