    PHILIPPINE President Benigno Aquino III on Friday said he would push for stronger trade relations, as well as raise awareness on climate change when he embarks on a multi-nation tour of Europe and the United States next month.

    While in Europe, President said he would express the country's gratitude to European nations for lifting the restrictions imposed on Philippine carriers, enabling the latter to penetrate the European market.
    He also said he would thank leaders of the European Union for their contributions to the Philippines in the aftermath of killer “Yolanda”(Haiyan) as well as to the peace efforts in Mindanao (Southern Philippines).
    He will also hold discussions regarding Filipino seafarers employed in European vessels under the European Maritime Safety Agency.
    After his tour of Europe, the President will proceed to the US to attend a United Nations (UN) summit on global climate change at the invitation of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
    He will share the country's experiences on the impact of global climate change and discuss the need to step up measures on raising awareness on climate change adaptation.
    Visiting other countries is very important, the President said, noting that meeting foreign leaders face-to-face results in better relations among countries.
