WATCH: Gretchen Barretto shows full support for Duterte during his speech in Japan


Bilyonaryos Antonio “Tonyboy” Cojuangco and Manny V. Pangilinan joined President Rodrigo Duterte for a three-day official visit in Tokyo, Japan.

Conjuangco was accompanied by his long-time partner Gretchen Barretto, who expressed in her Instagram account her excitement to be part of the delegation.

“This is my best accessory for today, this the business delegation ID supporting our dear President,” Barretto said in a short video posted in her Instagram.

Barretto was smart and classy in a crisp business attire paired with a square-rimmed purple eye glasses.

Cojuangco is a joint venture partner of Japanese billionaire Kazuo Okada for the $4-billion Manila Bay Resorts project in Parañaque City.

Pangilinan, meanwhile, is the chairman of construction conglomerate Metro Pacific Investment Corporation, which operates the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) and the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway through its subsidiary Manila North Tollways Corp.

In his pre-departure speech Monday afternoon, Duterte said he and his delegation will discuss with Japanese officials and businessmen possible investments in infrastructure projects especially in the area of public transportation.
