Fishermen and Duterte
MetadataShow full item record
The Pambansang Pamalakaya ng Pilipinas has found a reason to be excited recent pronouncements and actions by President Rodrigo Duterte on the issue of the fishing, especially in traditional Filipino fishing grounds such as Scarborough Shoal. Duterte, in a conversation with Chinese Ambassador Zhao Jianhua who visited him in Davao City, asked Zhao to tell his government to allow Filipino fishermen to continue fishing in the contested areas in South China Sea. The issue of Manila's claim to shoals and islets in the South China Sea was one of the important topics of the presidential debates during the campaign, and each of the five candidates for president were asked about their respective positions on this claim.
