Arroyo's Foreign Trip Bill: P123M

from the inquirer.

Ermita said the bill was “worth it” since the President secured “pledges” for multi-million dollar investments, including $200 million for agriculture from Saudi Arabia, $300 million for agriculture and between $350-$400 million for a Makati City hotel from Bahrain, and $1.2 billion for textile exports to the US.

“How much is the trip? If I’m not mistaken, P123 million,” Ermita told reporters at the Palace.

“It’s worth it. Can you imagine if the P1.2-billion [in] exports pushes through?” he added.
keywords: imagine. pledges. heh.
