Before his activities officially commence at the United Nations (UN) Headquarters, President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. held a series of meetings with American private companies in New York, United States of America (USA).
President Marcos Jr. first met with the top managers of NuScale Power — an American energy company founded in 2007— and talked about nuclear power in the Philippines. According to its website (www.nuscalepower.com), NuScale aims to provide scalable advanced nuclear technology for the production of electricity, heat and clean water to improve the quality of life for people around the world.
Thereafter, he met with California-based company WasteFuel which produces renewable fuels through proven technologies (converting municipal and agricultural waste into low-carbon fuels, renewable natural gas and green methanol) in an effort to address climate emergency and revolutionize mobility. It is the first project in development for aviation fuel in the Philippines.
Finally, the President received the executives of Boeing — a leading global aerospace company — for a discussion on the company’s support to the Philippines in the industry and its interest to work with the government, particularly on aviation sustainability and other areas of cooperation.
Through its long tradition of aerospace leadership and innovation, Boeing — being a top US exporter — has been the premier manufacturer of commercial jetliners for decades. To date, more than 10,000 Boeing-built commercial jetliners are in service worldwide.
