My right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary has no current plans to visit the Philippines. However, my hon. Friend the Minister for the Middle East plans to visit the region. The bilateral relationship between the UK and the Philippines is good, with strong political, trade and investment links. We work closely with the Philippino Government on key areas of shared concern including counter-terrorism, human rights, development, conflict prevention and peace building.
