    on vs from

    Acting Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert del Rosario said the President is scheduled to visit Jakarta on March 7 to 9 and then travel to Singapore on March 9 to 11 as part of his introductory tour in the region. This will be the President's first overseas trip for the year.

    Should 'from' be used instead of 'on'.

    Thanks.

    Re: on vs from

    The sentence is confused. He is not traveling "to" Singapore from March 9-11 or on March 9-11. He is probably traveling to Singapore on March 9 and staying till the 11th. Or he is visiting Singapore from the 9th to the 11th.

    Thanks, SoothingDave.

    I missed out the first 'on'. I have edited by making it bold.

    I think it should 'from', not 'on'.

    Yes, the first "on" should be "from."
