Travel expenses and names of delegation for each presidential trip abroad

Requested from PCOO by Kristine Sabillo at 08:06 PM on Dec 12, 2016.
Purpose: Research and news article
Date of Coverage: 06/30/2016 - 12/12/2016
Tracking no: #PCOO-447676711232

Good day!

Previously, the PCOO would release statements on how much each presidential trip abroad would cost. It would also include a total count of the members of the delegation, as well as their names (especially the Cabinet members). I would like to get the same information for the current administration, for each trip abroad since Duterte became president.

Looking forward to the data that you will share. Thank you!
