(UPDATE) WASHINGTON, D.C.: President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. expressed confidence that investments from the United States and Japan would pour into the Philippines in the next five years as a direct result of the successful trilateral meeting with US President Joe Biden and Prime Minister Fumio Kishida.

"I really view it as a continuing evolution of our relationship with both countries, with the US and Japan. And this is evidenced by the fact that a large part of the agreement is on economic proposals, and economic assistance and partnership between the three countries. Security and defense, of course, is there. But that is not the main point of the trilateral agreement," the Chief Executive said in a media briefing here.
