Italy, Philippines to explore infra cooperation 

ITALY will explore potential cooperation in infrastructure with the Philippines, the camp of President-elect Ferdinand R. Marcos, Jr. said following a courtesy call on Monday by the former’s top envoy.     

Italian Ambassador Marco Clemente and Mr. Marcos “talked about possible cooperation in infra projects” during their meeting, incoming press secretary Trixie Cruz-Angeles told a news briefing.   

“[They] also talked about COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) and cooperation on learning about COVID-19 responses and opening up the economy,” she added. 

Mr. Clemente, the fourth European diplomat to pay a courtesy call on Mr. Marcos, also committed to bring the Inter Milan Football Club in the Philippines “through intercampus projects to benefit children in need and to promote football locally,” Ms. Angeles said.   

“On the political aspect, the ambassador noted that this is the 75th year of Italian-Philippine relations,” Ms. Angeles said, noting that the two officials tackled the diplomatic relations between the two countries. — Kyle Aristophere T. Atienza
