Ambassador to
promote tourism, too


Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo and British Ambassador to the Philippines Daniel Robert Pruce discussed possible areas of cooperation in the field of education, tourism and business in Dumaguete City, recently.

Remollo said Pruce promised to promote the city as a tourist destination and a retirement haven for British citizens.

Both officials noted that hundreds of Filipinos are already working and holding top positions of multinational companies in London and Great Britain.

Remollo praised the transparency of the British government that allows legislators in Parliament to directly question the Prime Minister on policies and decision made by the government.

Councilors Alan Gel Cordova, Manuel Arbon, Joe Kenneth Arbas and Lionel Banogon joined the welcome ceremony and meeting.

The British envoy is the fifth diplomat to pay a courtesy call on Remollo in the course of their visits to the city. Previously, the envoys of Singapore, South Korea, Iran and the United States of America also met with Remollo to strengthen the cooperation between the city and their countries.*RG
