"Duterte trips to 12 nations cost P277M, earn $5.85B investment"- Palace

Malacañang on Tuesday said that the foreign trips of President Rodrigo Duterte cost P277 million, but earned the Philippines at least US$5.85 billion in foreign investments and at least 350,000 job opportunities.
"The President made a total of seven foreign trips, visiting a total of 12 countries since he took office. These visits incurred about P277 million in expenses which included airfare and others," Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella said in a briefing.

Duterte in 2016 visited Laos, Indonesia, Vietnam, Brunei, China, Japan, Thailand, Malaysia, Peru, New Zealand, Cambodia, and Singapore. 

Abella, however, pointed out that the China trip yielded around US$4 billion in investments and 100,000 jobs through 20 agreements.

He added that the visit to Japan produced investment commitment estimated at US$1.85 billion and is expected to generate around 250,000 jobs and five government-to-government agreements
