ARS CEO Julio Amador shares insights on PH foreign policy under the new Marcos administration

ARS CEO and Founder Julio Amador joins Veerle Nouwens, host of the podcast Bridging the Oceans, to discuss what the recent May 9 Philippine polls hold for the Indo-Pacific region.



"In this episode, Veerle is joined by Julio S Amador III, Founder and CEO of Amador Research Services. Together, they discuss the recent elections in the Philippines, which saw Marcos Jr elected as the new president of the country. Following President Duterte, whose relations with Beijing grew ever closer, what shape will Philippine foreign policy towards the US and China take? And what national defence and security policies are likely to emerge under a new Marcos administration? Finally, to what extent does the ongoing war in Ukraine impact Manila’s foreign and domestic policies?" (from RUSI website)
