“We fully support the MOA (memorandum of agreement) executed among the train operators of LRT-1, MRT-3 and MRT-7 and the Department of Transportation (DOTr) agreeing to the intersection of EDSA and North Avenue in Quezon City as the location of the common train station,” they said in a statement.

Given China’s stature as a major player in global affairs, and the Philippines’ steady economic rise, both our countries stand to benefit from renewed and much closer ties, particularly in trade and investment. China’s expertise in infrastructure will be critical to the Philippines’ development, as we seek to close the massive infrastructure gap that has been suppressing the country’s growth for the past years.
