MANILA (Mabuhay) – Philippine traders and prospective overseas Filipino workers may benefit from a visa waiver deal reportedly being worked out between the Philippines and Taiwan.
The deal is said to be among the issues to be tackled during former President Fidel Ramos’ visit there, Taiwan’s Central News Agency reported.
Ramos arrived in Taiwan on March 5 for a five-day “friendship visit” aimed at bolstering ties between the Philippines and Taiwan.
He led a 60-member delegation, the CNA report said.
The CNA report quoted Philippines-based trader Chen Wen-ju, president of the Taiwanese Chamber of the South Philippines, as saying the mutual visa-waiver agreement was one of the goals of the visit. (MNS)
