Christmas is a time for giving. And just when you thought we're already done with our line up, we've decided to add not one, but two culminating performances interspersed within our upcoming docu-film that feature stories of our overseas kababayans.
Our #FiliXP Culminating events will be a mix of artists we've featured earlier: Lindon Mondigo , Yuki Sonoda , Mich Brijuega , Justine Afante, and Bebe's Wish Band , and one-night-only performances from Carlos Alberto Ibay , Diwa De Leon , Annie Nepomuceno , Dennis Sumaylo , Miguel Castro , Jed Marcelo , and Ria Faye Paderanga. They will be performing a rendition of Sa Pasko by the Akafellas, arranged by Glenn Aquias for FiliXP, and Tayo Tayo Pa Rin Sa Huli, written and composed by Norvin delos Santos and Alyanna Cabral for FiliXP, also arranged by Glenn Aquias.
Justine Afante is our very own The Voice Kids UK 2020 winner who wowed judges and audiences alike with her extraordinary singing voice.
We have an entire week full of awesome performances from our #FiliCollab artists and a docu compilation of Overseas Filipino narratives so make sure you click attending on our event page for the latest #FiliXP updates! https://www.google.com/url?q=https://fb.me/e/1hxkrviwn&source=gmail&ust=1640164877217000&usg=AOvVaw2xtDnHXevQSoJm0EoHyVFM">https://fb.me/e/1hxkrviwn

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM – The Philippines has been re-elected as member of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) Council under Category C for Biennium 2022 to 2023, during the 32ND Session of the IMO Assembly at the IMO Headquarters in London on 10 December 2021.
The election of the Philippines to the IMO Council comes as a double victory after the historic election earlier in the week of Philippine Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the IMO, H.E. Antonio M. Lagdameo, as IMO Assembly President. It is the first time in IMO’s history that the Philippines was elected as IMO Assembly President.
Ambassador Lagdameo, as Head of the Philippine delegation, noted that the successful re-election of the Philippines to the Council comes at a time when the World Maritime Theme is Seafarers at the core of shipping’s future, a theme which has great resonance for the Philippines as a major seafaring nation.
Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the International Maritime Organization (IMO) H.E. Antonio M. Lagdameo was elected as president of the 32nd IMO Assembly during its opening session this morning (6 December 2021) at the IMO Headquarters in London. It is the first time in IMO’s history that the Philippines was elected as President of the Assembly.
Ambassador Lagdameo was nominated by the Permanent Representative of the United Kingdom and seconded by the representative of South Africa. The Permanent Representatives of Italy and Namibia were also elected as first vice-President and Second Vice President, respectively. In thanking delegations for their support, Ambassador Lagdameo noted that his election comes at a year in which seafarers are recognized at the heart of shipping. He said that it is an acknowledgment and endorsement of the commitment that the Philippines has made to the objectives and work of the Organization.
