Karagatan Observer | First Quarter 2024


The beginning of 2024 has seen the Philippines experience several milestones. The greatest victory the Philippines has is the passing of the Maritime Zones Bill, which passed Congress in late March. A timely legislation that was mentioned last year as a priority. The deliberation and subsequent passage of the bill occurred during sustained swarming and incursions of the Chinese, unhindered from the previous year. As the Philippines strengthens its relations with the United States (US) and other like-minded countries, its relationship with China continues to sink.
