“To borrow a term from America’s favorite pastime, the President has hit a ‘home run’,” Zubiri said.

President Marcos attended the United Nations General Assembly, met with US President Joseph Biden Jr, and a host of other engagements with the business sector and the Filipino community.

“His message that the Philippines is back in business resonated well, whether in his meetings with business movers or his one-on-one with Biden, either in the stock exchange or in the United Nations,’’ Zubiri stressed.

“This is the kind of face-to-face diplomacy which yields tremendous dividends for our nation, from job-creating investments to agreements that promote the social good,’’ he said.

“As the world emerges from the pandemic, there is keen competition for products, the need to boost trade and to expand markets. Luckily for us, we have a great salesman in the person of the President,’’ he added.
