Oman’s honorary consul in the Philippines, Leonardo de Ocampo, was recognized with a top diplomatic award from the sultan of Oman last December.
De Ocampo was conferred with the Order of Al Nuoman, second class, by Sultan Haitham Bin Tariq on Dec. 22, according to the Oman News Agency. It is the highest diplomatic award that a non-Omani citizen can receive.
De Ocampo was recognized for his efforts and contributions in strengthening the relationship between the sultanate and the Philippines.
The consul was handed the award by Munthir Mahfoudh al-Manthri, Oman’s ambassador to the Philippines, at the embassy of Oman in Taguig.
Sayyid Badr bin Hamad bin Hamood Al Busaidi, Oman’s minister of foreign affairs, also paid tribute to de Ocampo’s work for Oman and the Philippines via Twitter last Dec. 23.
