The Asia Society is delighted to host Secretary of Foreign Affairs Alan Peter S. Cayetano for major policy address on Philippines-U.S. relations. His address will be followed by a moderated discussion.
Secretary Cayetano is in the position to provide insight into the Duterte administration’s foreign policy priorities — from the country’s relations with the U.S. and China, to its approach on the South China Sea disputes, to its pursuit of a more independent foreign policy. As the current chair of ASEAN, the Philippines will be hosting the East Asia Summit in Manila this November. What should observers expect to be on the agenda at the summit? Will there be a formal meeting between President Duterte and President Trump?
