Taipei, Nov. 11 (CNA) The Philippines' new representative to Taiwan Angelito Banayo looks forward to advancing bilateral people- to-people relations between the two sides, under the framework of Taiwan's "new southbound policy" and the Philippines' efforts to foster closer regional integration, the Manila Economic and Cultural Office (MECO) said Friday.

Banayo, who concurrently serves as chairman and chief executive officer of the MECO, arrived in Taiwan on Nov. 8 to formally assume his duties.

In a statement, the MECO -- which represents the Philippines' interests in Taiwan in the absence of bilateral diplomatic ties -- said Banayo's top priorities will also include expanding trade and investment relations, promoting tourism, improving the welfare of Filipino migrant workers here and enhancing cooperation in agriculture, education and culture.

The 70-year-old is a veteran in government service. His previous posts include serving as the administrator of the National Food Authority, head of the Philippine Tourism Authority and postmaster general.

Proposed by President Tsai Ing-wen, the new southbound policy seeks to promote Taiwan's relations with countries in Southeast Asia and South Asia, as well as Australia and New Zealand. (Courtesy of CNA)
