These schools have been among the top-rated all the time. We have a total of 926 high schools in the capital Manila and the Turkish schools top the list. I would like to thank Turkish people for establishing these schools.”Maria Rowena Sanchez, the Philippines’ newly assigned ambassador to Turkey, too attended the gathering by Izmir’s Association of Businessmen and Industrialists (IZISAD).

She highlighted the potential that a population of 110 million could offer to foreign investors. “ You are welcome to come and partner in particularly agriculture, food, navigation, real estate, tourism and medical care.”
