Deputy Presidential Spokesman Rogelio Peyuan said President Arroyo will seek to maintain strong relations with China and promote the Philippines.

The National Pavillon Day for the Philippines is set on June 9 with the theme "Performing Cities." The Philippine Pavillon is located within Zone B of the Expo Site in Shanghai.
