MANILA, Philippines — Malacañang has lifted its directive for government officials to refrain from traveling to Canada, Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea said Tuesday.

Medialdea issued a memorandum on May 20, ordering all secretaries and heads of government agencies to “refrain from issuing travel authorities for official foreign trips to Canada.” This order came in the wake of issues surrounding the garbage of Canada that was imported to the Philippines six years ago.
