President Marcos is expected to meet with Czech Republic President Petr Pavel during his visit.

The President will also meet with three other constitutional heads of government such as Czech Republic Prime Minister Petr Fiala, and the heads of the Czech Parliament, Senate President Miloš Vystrčil and the Speaker of the Chamber of Deputies Markéta Pekarová Adamová.


He is also expected to sign a Joint Communiqué on the establishment of labor consultation mechanisms, which aims to elevate cooperation between the Philippines and the Czech Republic for the safe and orderly migration of Filipino workers and provide a higher level of protection of their rights and welfare.
