MANILA, Philippines — President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. is open to a possible partnership with Lithuania in the field of technology, particularly laser technology, according to Malacañan on Wednesday.

During his presentation of credentials to the President, Lithuanian non-resident Ambassador to the Philippines Ricardas Slepavicius said that while the two countries are far from each other, his country could still offer technological solutions to the Philippines.

The Palace, quoting Slepavicius, said Lithuania, a country in the Baltic region of Europe, was a pioneer in laser development and production, accounting for 10 percent of the global market for lasers.


“In terms of the technology, that’s certainly something that we should look into. I’m convinced that the solutions to the challenges that we’re facing would be technological, would come from technology,” Marcos told Slepavicius.

“[That] could be in a scientific area. Say we have a small nation with specific expertise which we do have, we could really be good partners for your business, your universities, scientific institutions,” Slepavicius told Marcos.

According to the Palace, Marcos agreed with Slepavicius.

Other areas of cooperation that the Lithuanian Ambassador cited include green energy, and biotech.
