VP Sara Duterte acts as OIC while Marcos is on state visits

JAKARTA —Vice President Sara Duterte has been designated as the country's officer-in-charge following President Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr.'s state visits to Indonesia and Singapore this week.

A copy of the Special Order No. 75, designating Duterte as officer-in-charge, was released by the Office of the Press Secretary to the media on Sunday, September 4.

Marcos left the country for Indonesia "to put the Philippines in a position where we have strong alliances and strong partnerships that are necessary for us to come out of the post-pandemic economy."

After his visit to Indonesia, the President will be going to Singapore in which he is also expected to harvest investment deals that are in line with the priorities of his administration. —LBG, GMA News
