MANILA - President Aquino on Monday said his visit to Canada and the US was a huge success.

In his arrival speech, Aquino said many private companies from both countries have expressed interest in investing in the Philippines.

Canada, for example, wants to invest in the tourism and agricultural sectors.

"Maski ako nagulat. Hindi lang kasi mais, pati pagtatanim ng blueberries and cranberries pinag-iisipan na nilang pasukin sa bansa. Hindi ito wishful thinking, talagang balak nilang magawa ito sa loob ng isa't kalahating taon," he said.

The President also said Canada has pledged to increase security cooperation with the Philippines.

"Bukod sa pagpapalago ng komerysa at ekonomiya, katuwang din natin ang Canada sa pagpapaigting ng seguridad, at paglaban sa krimen at terorismo. Si Prime Minister Harper na po ang nagsabi, handa ang kanyang pamahalaan makiambag sa pagsasanay sa larangan ng seguridad, partikular na sa ating port security."

Aquino arrived in Manila on Monday morning.
