The annual reception for students is the Embassy’s way of bringing together Filipino students in the UK and as an opportunity for them to meet and network with Embassy personnel and with one another.
In Ambassador Antonio M. Lagdameo’s welcome remarks, he looked back on the many milestones that the Philippines marked in 2021 and expressed optimism for the Philippine economy’s recovery from the pandemic. He urged the students to keep in touch with the Embassy and looked forward to better circumstances in 2022 to allow the Embassy to meet Filipino students in the UK more often.
