Observers said they expect the Philippines' president-elect air jordan 7 retro for sale , Rodrigo Duterte, who was proclaimed the winner in the May 9 elections by Congress Monday, to open a new door for Sino-Philippine cooperation, regardless of maritime disputes.

Though the US has urged Duterte to "challenge China 'expansionism' over disputed islands," the new president's greatest challenge is to "overcome such threats and to use the helpful hand of the Philippines' thousand year-old friendship with China" to actually benefit the Filipino people, Herman Tiu Laurel, a host on the Manila-based Global News Network jordan 7 for sale , told the Global Times in an e-mail.

In a message to congratulate Duterte on being elected Philippine president, Chinese President Xi Jinping said on Monday that the leaders of China and the Philippines share the responsibility to maintain and deepen their good neighborly and friendly relations as well as mutually beneficial cooperation, Xinhua reported.

Xi added that he hoped the two sides would work together to get bilateral relations back on the track of sound development. Xi also congratulated Duterte beforehand on leading the Philippine people to make new achievements in national construction and development.

Railway cooperation

Before he was officially announced the winner, Duterte said on Saturday that construction of the nation's railway system is the "first big project" of his administration, the Manila Livewire reported Sunday.

However, since the Philippines lacks funds for the project, assistance from other nations is needed jordan 6 pinnacle gold for sale , Duterte said at a press conference in Davao City. When asked which particular nation he had in mind, he answered, "maybe China," said the report.

According to Duterte, the new railway systems would link Manila to Nueva Ecija in the north, and to Sorsogon and Batangas in southern Luzon.

Another area that urgently needs support and fast construction capabilities are hydro-electric and irrigation facilities, said Laurel.

He said the vast multi-stage Agus-Pulangui hydro-electric plants in Duterte's own Mindanao island suffer up to 70 percent siltation air jordan 6 black cat size 13 , and 2.5 million hectares of farmland still lacks irrigation as of 2015.

What's more, "China has eliminated hunger by developing its indigenous hybrid rice, and other crops can be of great assistance to the Philippines' quest for food self-sufficiency," added Laurel.

Aside from infrastructure, Beijing and Manila could cooperate in trade, tourism, and investments that could truly benefit the Philippines air jordan 6 sport blue for sale , Li Kaisheng, an associate research fellow at the Institute of International Relations, Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences, told the Global Times.

China is the Philippines' second-largest trading partner, according to the latest annual foreign trade data released by the Philippine Statistics Authority in September 2015.

Stance on maritime dispute

When Duterte mentioned the railroad project and China as an ideal bidder, he insisted that such a project "should not compromise the country's position on its claims over disputed territories" in the Huangyan island in the South China Sea.

"Just because you're building me the railway does not mean to say that I am abandoning the Scarborough Shoal [Huangyan island]," he was quoted as saying by Manila Bulletin.

However air jordan 6 doernbecher for sale , Duterte said a month before that he was willing to ''shut up'' about the dispute if he becomes president, as long as China will offer to build vital transportation facilities and other infrastructure in the Philippines, ABS-CBN News reported on April 13.

"Duterte's stance on the maritime dispute is 'context-based,' and while this won't change, he is unlikely to be very tough on practical issues," said Li.

Speaking at a press conference in Palawan in April, Duterte said he is open to having a joint exploration between the Philippines and China in the disputed waters air jordan 6 varsity red black , an approach the Aquino administration has long dismissed.

"Change is what differentiates Duterte from his predecessor and that is what led him to victory, and his social and economic mission will define his presidency," Wang Haipeng, an expert on maritime and border studies at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, told the Global Times.

However, what Duterte does after the arbitration case at The Hague is decided remains uncertain, as he is also new to foreign affairs air jordan 6 varsity red for sale , though he was experienced in regional affairs as a local official, said Wang.

The Philippine Congress said Duterte had amassed 16,601,997 votes, almost 7 million more than second-placer Manuel Roxas, the candidate endorsed by President Benigno Aquino III, the Xinhua News Agency reported. The 71-year-old incoming president will take over from Aquino on June 30 as the country's 16th president.

Australia has welcomed the idea of possibly competing at the Asian Games after Asian Olympic officials agreed to let Oceania nations join them in smaller multi-sport events.

While there are no firm plans as yet to allow Oceanic countries to compete at the main Asian Games air jordan 6 retro for sale , which are second in size only to the Olympic Games, the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) has now opened the door.

The OCA general assembly, meeting on the sidelines of the 17th Asian Games in South Korea, voted over the weekend to allow Oceanic countries to compete at the next Asian Indoor Games, to be held in 2017.

The OCA president, Sheikh Ahmad al-Fahad al-Sabah, said the two regions were taking things slowly but the OCA had not ruled out the prospect of allowing Oceanic nations to compete at bigger multi-sport events in Asia in the future.

The news was welcomed in Australia air jordan 6 for sale , which has long entertained the idea of forging closer ties with Asia to expose their athletes to stiffer competition from the likes of China, Japan and South Korea.
