The PBBC extends a very warm welcome to the new Ambassador to the UK from the Philippines – His Excellency Antonio M. Lagdameo. When I say the “new” Ambassador, I really mean welcome back to an “old” Ambassador and friend.
Ambassador Lagdameo was, in fact, in this same position from 2009 to 2010 and knows London well.
In his recent letter to the Filipino community in the UK, he says:
“I find that many things have changed in London since 2010, but much more have remained the same.””
We will do what it takes to maintain our close relationships and collaborative partnership with the Filipino community in the United Kingdom and Ireland which had been fostered carefully by my predecessors during their time.”
“I invite you to continue supporting the Embassy’s efforts to enhance bilateral relations between these two countries and our beloved Philippines.”
