The Philippines’ claim over the disputed areas in the South China Sea will not be abandoned despite President Duterte’s participation in China’s Belt and Road Summit. Ambassador Jose Santiago “Chito” Sta. Romana said the South China Sea dispute might derail trade and economic ties once it is forced amidst the reinvigorated ties between Manila and Beijing. The improved bilateral relations between the Philippines and China had resulted in the granting of about $24 billion in investment deals under the Duterte administration.
