MANILA - Pres­i­dent Ro­drigo Duterte on Mon­day urged In­dian Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi to in­vest more in the Philip­pines, par­tic­u­larly in the man­u­fac­tur­ing of af­ford­able medicines and cars.

“We would (be) happy to see you build­ing an in­vest­ment that would in­clude the medicine and the things that, I said, even the ve­hi­cles,” Duterte told Modi.

“If there is an in­vestor that could be in­ter­ested, an In­dian ci­ti­zen of yours who would want to ven­ture in our place, we would be happy,” he added.

Duterte noted that medicines man­u­fac­tured in In­dia, es­pe­cially the generic medicines, are priced lower than those man­u­fac­tured in the United States.

The Pres­i­dent said he would also wel­come car man­u­fac­tur­ers, not­ing that the Philippine Na­tional Po­lice uses Mahin­dra cars

from In­dia.

“The (Philippine) Na­tional Po­lice is us­ing Mahin­dra. It’s one that’s be­ing used and there are a lot of them. I think there are al­most 1,000 new (ve­hi­cles) and it’s good. It’s be­ing used now. They are out­side, they are guard­ing this place,” Duterte told Modi. SunS­tar Philip­pines
