Clinton visit a sign of confidence in PHL – Aquino
President Benigno S. Aquino III said that the upcoming visit of former US President Bill Clinton is a sign of confidence in the Philippines despite the spate of travel advisories issued by several countries due to the global terror threat.

“I would assume that it would be a vote of confidence,” the President said referring to Clinton’s visit on Wednesday. 

The President pointed out that Clinton has a secret service detailed to him and, in case, there was a realistic and imminent terrorist threat, his security will object to the visit.

On a possible meeting with Clinton, the President said that due to his hectic schedules, it would be impossible for him to meet Clinton.

“There is no such meeting at this time, I’m preparing for APEC (to be held in Japan),” the President said.

He expects to be discussed during the APEC meeting the issue on the volatility of the international financial market especially the instability of exchange rates affecting the entire global community.

Before his departure for Japan on Thursday, the President is scheduled to visit Cebu on Wednesday to inaugurate a hotel and to launch a ship that would further enhance tourism and job generation in the Central Visayas region.
