Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will this week become the first head of state to visit the Philippines since Rodrigo Duterte was sworn in as president last year.

The two countries have always maintained close economic and diplomatic ties - and Duterte is hoping to strengthen that relationship at a time of uncertainty in the South China Sea.
