Vice President Leni Robredo off to EUROPE to discuss POVERTY ALLEVIATION!

Vice President Leni Robredo is set to travel to Europe this week to attend a series of meetings and forums centered on improving social justice and eliminating poverty.

In a statement on Tuesday, the Office of the Vice President (OVP) said Robredo will be delivering a speech at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) on Friday, April 6.

“Upon the invitation of DESTIN, the student society of LSE’s Department of International Development, the Vice President is expected to discuss the economic and political situation of the Philippines, in particular the state of poverty here and initiatives to address the problem,” the OVP said.

The forum would be attended by students from LSE and other London-based universities. Expected to attend the forum are Filipino students taking up post-graduate studies in London.

Robredo, will also meet with members of the German government and civil society organizations for discussions on governance, including finding sustainable solutions to poverty alleviation and social justice.

"The activities will include discussions on citizen-oriented and democratic local and national administration, as well as using communication in developing poverty alleviation and social justice strategy for governance," the OVP said in a statement.

As recount started earlier this week, the camp of Marcos claimed that there were irregularities in ballots from Camarines Sur. The Robredo camp, however, insisted that the missing audit logs that Marcos claimed missing were with the Commission on Elections.
