He said Myanmar and the Philippines have "a common interest in sustaining inclusive growth and development for our peoples".

Duterte, who took office in the middle of a year ago, has overseen a ruthless campaign to eradicate illegal drugs that he says are threatening to turn the Philippines into a narco-state.

"President Duterte's visit to Myanmar is significant in many respects".

"With expanding Philippine businesses making their marks around the region and in Myanmar, we can encourage collaboration in mutually beneficial sectors of growth, including in pharmaceuticals and food and beverage", the President stated in his departure message as he left for Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar yesterday afternoon from the Davao International Airport.

"I shall also meet State Counselor and Foreign Minister Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and Commander-in-Chief of Defense Senior General Min Aung Hlaing".

"My visit will underscore our commitment to deepen partnership with Myanmar towards a brighter and better future".

Both Duterte and Suy Kyi have earned the ire of the United Nations body, with the Philippine leader being grilled over the summary executions in relation to his bloody drug campaign.

"Commemorative activities have been held beginning last year and the President's visit to Myanmar this year is the culmination of the celebration of this milestone in our friendly relations with Myanmar", he said.

Henry Lim, chairman of SL Agritech, a hybrid rice and seeds producer, said Myanmar is pursuing a more expansive technology demonstration of hybrid rice under a possible bilateral agreement with the Philippines. And then they said, "He is a strong man". The President referred to a recent Time magazine cover article on gender and sexuality to highlight what he insisted was blanket Filipino opposition to same-sex marriage. On Sunday, he again warned that many more people would be killed in the crackdown. Duterte won the overseas balloting in Myanmar, getting over 56 percent of the vote.
