HOUSE Minority Leader Marcelino “Nonoy” Libanan on Sunday wished President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. “all the success” on his five-day official visit to the United States that includes a bilateral meeting with US President Joe Biden.

“We wish the President good luck, and we wish him all the success,” Libanan said.

“We are all counting on the President’s trip to pave the way for additional American direct investment inflows that we need to support our economic recovery and generate new employment,” Libanan said.

“If we look at the latest surveys, the creation of new jobs remains among the top concerns of Filipinos,” Libanan said.

At present, American multinational corporations in the Philippines are invested mostly in manufacturing, wholesale trade, and professional, scientific, and technical services, including highly labor-intensive business process outsourcing (BPO) activities.

Mr. Marcos is leaving today for his second US trip since assuming office in June 2022.

He will also be meeting Biden for the second time after they first met on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in New York in September last year.
