Celebrating 20 Years in serving the diplomatic missions, connecting international markets with Singapore since 1999.
H.E. Joseph Del Mar Yap
Embassy of the Republic of the Philippines, SIngapore
As ambassador, my duties encompass two major tasks: The first is the welfare and protection of the rights of the Filipino workforce here. We have 180,000 Filipinos working in Singapore. The second is to continue developing and strengthening bilateral relations with Singapore. Next year we will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of bilateral ties between our two nations. So in the light of that we will be working on various aspects of those relations amongst which will also be the trade and investment aspects.
Given my personal background as a business person from the private sector, the trade and investment side of my job is something that I understand quite well. In my previous career, our company had business dealings with Singaporean companies including a joint venture with Government of Singapore Investment Corporation or GIC. In addition, we have also worked with Changi Airports International. So this is something that I would like to see develop further. I believe there are many opportunities in the Philippines right now with the building up of our infrastructure under the Build, Build, Build program , and the development of the New Clark City. Our consumer driven industries also continue to grow and expand. We have met with and are in close contact with Enterprise Singapore in order to foster more trade and investment relations between the Philippines and Singapore.
