The deal was offered by Josef Fullenbach, head of the Southeast Asia unit of the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development in a recent meeting with Economic Planning Secretary Ralph Recto, the Filipino official said in a statement.

Recto has welcomed the proposal and the concerned government agencies have been asked to draft projects that would satisfy the German government's conditions for retiring the debt, it added.
