US Commits to Strengthening Food Security in the Philippines

Vice President Harris has launched an initiative to strengthen the US-Philippines alliance, including measures to enhance food security and supporting organic agriculture.

A statement released by The White House has disclosed that the US will be working closely with the Philippines to strengthen the nations’ “economic and investment relationship”.

Vice President Kamala Harris visited the Philippines on 20 November 2022 and met with officials to discuss various concerns.

The meeting reportedly resulted in an agreement to cooperate on a “range of issues”, including advancing clean energy, addressing the climate crisis, promoting inclusive growth and innovation, increasing access to quality education and health resources, combating trafficking in people, facing common security challenges, supporting freedom of the seas, and deepening people-to-people ties.
