Before the president’s visit, E-Mart signed a contract with the Department of Agriculture Philippines to increase supplies of Philippine products. It also plans to hold the Philippine food festival regularly.

E-mart sells 110 billion won ($102.7 million) worth of food imports from the Philippines, mostly fruits.
