Former Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert del Rosario said there can be economic activity in the exclusive economic zone of the Philippines without compromising Manila's legal victory in the West Philippine Sea. This, after President Rodrigo Duterte earlier said he was amenable to China's request for the Philippines to set aside the 2016 ruling to push through with the joint oil and gas exploration deal in the disputed waters.

But an analyst notes that the documents concerning the joint development agreement has yet to be finalized.
