UK envoy bids farewell, conveys vaccine donation
AFTER serving for four years, the United Kingdom’s Ambassador to the Philippines Daniel Pruce paid a farewell call on Secretary of Foreign Affairs Teodoro L. Locsin Jr. on July 29 at the Department of Foreign Affairs Headquarters.
Locsin thanked Pruce for his dedicated service in strengthening the two-way relations between the Philippines and the UK. Their discussions also followed through on matters discussed during the recent phone call between the former and
Secretary Dominic Raab, such as the enhanced bilateral partnership, police cooperation, and the UK’S bid to become an Asean dialogue partner.
To support the Philippines’s vaccine roll-out program, Pruce informed the secretary that the UK’S donation of 415,000 doses of Astrazeneca vaccines was scheduled to arrive in the country on the afternoon of August 2.
European Affairs Assistant Secretary Jaime Victor J. Ledda was also present during the call. Pruce’s tour of duty ends this month.
