"As the Philippines Ambassador to China, I feel great responsibilities on my shoulders."
A speech delivered by the Philippine Ambassador to China, H.E. Mrs. Erlinda Basilio, at the 1th Anniversary of Home and Abroad News Press
Distinguished leaders, distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen, and the colleagues of Home and Abroad News Press, good evening everybody! Firstly, on behalf of the Philippine embassy, I wish today's event a great success!
This evening is a beautiful night for all of us. Today, I am very honored to be able to stand here and receive "2014 the News Person of the Year" award. As the Philippine Ambassador to China, I feel the great responsibilities on my shoulders. Myself and my team will make all possible efforts to promote the development of friendly relations between China and the Philippines. To Philippines, the bilateral relationship with China is very important. I am very grateful to the Chinese government and Chinese companies, associations to support Philippines in many ways. Also in the Philippines, there are a lot of people making great efforts and contributions to grow and promote relations between the two countries. So tonight, I think this award is not only a personal honor for me, but also a high recognition to all people who share the mutual trust and friendly interaction between Philippines and China. After receiving this special award, I will continue to promote the relations between the two countries and spare no effort to make the bilateral relationship towards new heights.
In my 45-year diplomatic career in politics, although I received many awards, I specially cherish this award tonight because it is the recognition for Philippines and China's relationship as well as the mutual respect and friendship between the people of the two countries. I will also dedicate this award to my colleagues in the Philippine Embassy, they also made remarkable contributions to develop the friendly exchanges between the two countries, they also should be highly recognized. To me personally, this award is recognition of my hardworking, but also I will take it as the encouragement for me to do a much better job in the future. Hence, I would like to express my sincere thanks to all of you, and I wish you all enjoy this lovely evening together.
