China & Philippines Cooperation


Zemin, Jiang, Estrada, Joseph P., Presidents & Prime Ministers


President Jiang Zemin

President Jiang Zemin said China and the Philippines are close neighbors, and friendship between the two peoples can be traced back to ancient times.

President Estrada

President Estrada said that during his stay in Beijing, the two sides will sign a joint statement on bilateral cooperation oriented towards the 21st century, as well as other documents which will be milestones in the history of Philippine-Chinese relations, and set the direction for the development of these relations. …
