“Welcome to Manila, although technically you are not in Manila,” said Foreign Undersecretary Laura del Rosario as she greeted foreign delegates who are attending ministerial meetings prior to the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (Apec) leaders’ summit schedule next week.

Del Rosario delivered the welcome remarks at a dinner for foreign guests ongoing today, Nov. 13, at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City.

She also told the delegates to prepare for “high-energy performances” of Filipino talents, adding that Manila serves as the country’s center for cultural events.
