According to the Organizing Committee for Expo 2012 Yeosu Korea, the Philippines recently confirmed its participation, pushing up the number of countries taking part in the event to 100. The event will be held from May 12 to Aug. 12.
The Philippines government decided to take part in the event despite its policy of curbing spending in light of the close relationship it has with Korea, the organizing committee said.
