Vice President Jejomar Binay leaves for Germany on Sunday to represent the Philippines in the Asia-Pacific Weeks 2013 in Berlin.

Binay, whose visit to Germany will last until June 9, is expected to keynote the opening of the event, dzBB reported.

Asia-Pacific Weeks is an event that seeks to help developing nations in social urban development.

Binay, the presidential adviser on overseas Filipino worker concerns, is expected to meet with German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle and Federal Labor Minister Ursula von der Leyen.

He will also meet with key German business leaders, and preside over a presentation on “Makati City as Smart City Portal to Business in the Philippines.”

Also, he will meet with Filipino communities in Germany before returning to the Philippines.

“I look forward to sustain the momentum created by the earlier exchange of visits between Secretary Albert del Rosario to Germany in 2011 and German Minister Guido Westerwelle to Manila last February,” a report on Bombo Radyo quoted Binay as saying. — LBG, GMA News
