Trudeau: Canada to invest $17.8M for Filipino women's reproductive health

Manila: Justin Trudeau Canada's Prime Minister on Tuesday has expressed his countries interests in joining the ASEAN summit.

"As a member of a wide range of multilateral organizations, we are uniquely positioned to amplify that message before worldwide audiences and our partners", Trudeau said in a speech marking the 40 Asean-Canada Commemorative Summit on the second day of the 31 Asean Summit on Tuesday.

Trudeau stressed that Canada has earned a reputation for being able to be frank and firm in discussing issues like rule of law and human rights with partners around the world, adding that "it's very much what people expect of Canada".

Trudeau said that during his meeting with President Rodrigo Duterte, they discussed how they can collaborate on "reducing hostage-taking as a fund raising mechanism" for terrorists.

"I am pleased to announce that Canada will be investing in sexual health and empowerment project that will be implemented by Oxfam", Trudeau said during a press briefing at World Trade Center in Pasay City.




"We have been advised by the Philippines that most of the people engaged in the kidnapping of two Canadians have been killed in military operations".

"We know that talking about human rights is an essential part of a path forward. We must have to protect life, to uphold the rule of law and human rights", he said.

This is the second visit of Trudeau to Manila, the first in 2015 when the Philippines also hosted the Asean Summit.

Duterte is hosting world leaders as the Philippines holds the rotating chair of the 10-nation Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) bloc.
