MESSAGE OF APPRECIATION



DEAR DELEGATES,


For and in behalf of Phlqat and its Advisors Babe Romualdez, Atty. Nonong Cruz, Jr., Atty. Jun Manaligod and Monch Cruz and our hosts, Qatar Airways and the Qatar Chamber of Commerce, I would like to thank you for your support and participation in the recently concluded PhilQat Trade Visit held in Doha, Qatar on November 23-25, 2015.

The trade visit was, by and large, a success for which we can all be proud. A framework for more substantive collaboration between the Philippine and Qatari businesses is now in place. With your continued involvement, all of us can now look into the future of Philippine-Qatari relations with greater confidence.

Many thanks and more power!
