Dear fellow PHLQATs:

I am pleased to introduce our new Chief Operating Officer Atty. Rommel R. Ramos. A dynamic 38 year old, graduate of law from the Ateneo University, with an Executive MBA from Northwestern University – Kellogg School of Management. His stints include EEI Corporation as Senior Legal Counsel, SGV & Co as Associate Director and Senior Associate of Roxas de los Reyes Laurel & Rosario Law Offices.

Chief Operating Officer Atty. Rommel R. RamosAttorney Rommel was hand picked to spearhead and package selected business projects from both the private and government sector that would be beneficial in strengthening trade relations between Qatar and the Philippines.

With a new administration in place, our mandate is to jumpstart where we left off last year in our 2015 November Philippine Qatar Trade Visit to Qatar and we are initiating a visit by an official ministerial delegation to the Philippines soon for meaningful trade talks for infrastructure development and other business economic and trade activities.

On another note, our congratulations and support to the current administration headed by President Rodrigo Roa Duterte and Vice President Maria Leonor Gerona Robredo.

Three of our fellow PHLQATs recently paid a courtesy visit to the President as pictures below.
