He stated that “these interests are not limited to trade and investments but also in education”. Accordingly, he encouraged the chapter to play an active role in the promotion of Australian education. More importantly, he commends PA3i’s engagement in meaningful projects that impact communities such as those undertaken by the chapter. He affirms that these projects will facilitate the Australian Government’s objectives and also strengthen the relationships between the Philippines and Australia.
