MANILA, Philippines – After participating in the United States-Association of Southeast Asian Nations Leaders Summit in Sunnylands, California, President Benigno Aquino III on Wednesday met with executives of Walt Disney International.

During his meeting with Disney executives, Aquino discussed the possible investment opportunities with Walt Disney Chair Andy Bird and Vice President for global public policy Jim Flippatos.

Aquino is in Los Angeles, California for a two-day working visit which includes other series of business meetings with Western Digital Corp. and AECOM’s Enterprise Growth Solutions.

The president’s meetings were held at the  InterContinental Los Angeles Century City.

The president also delivered a speech before the non-partisan and non-profit organization promoting greater understanding of current global issues, Los Angeles World Affairs Councils (LAWAC). He discussed “the growing tension between the Philippines and China over sovereignty issues in the South China Sea.”

Aquino spoke about “the new defense agreement between Manila and Washington, security in East Asia, and the future for economic growth in the Philippines and its neighbors in South East Asia.”

LAWAC was founded in 1953 and is continuously inviting authoritative and influential speakers.
