PGMA confers Order of Sikatuna on outgoing Japanese Ambassador

Manila (12 September) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo conferred this morning the Order of Sikatuna, Rank of Datu, on outgoing Japanese Ambassador to the Philippines Ryuichiro Yamazaki who is winding up his diplomatic posting in the country on Sept. 15

Ambassador Yamazaki's Philippine tour of duty was "highlighted by high-level dialogues between the Philippines and Japan, and the holding of various activities marking the 50th anniversary of the normalization of diplomatic relations" between the two countries, the Malacaņang protocol office said.

The Palace also acknowledged "the active participation of the government of Japan in the Southern Philippines peace process, and the gradual resumption of Japanese loans and grants to the Philippines" during Yamazaki's assignment in the country.

The President, in a powder-blue coat dress, and Foreign Affairs Secretary Alberto Romulo, wished Ambassador Yamazaki well in his future endeavors.

With Yamazaki during the ceremony held at the Music Room of Malacaņang were other Japanese embassy officials led by Elichi Oshima, deputy head of mission and Japan's consul general to the Philippines; Hidenobu Sobashima, head of the Japanese chancery; Yoshihisa Ishikawa, first secretary; Akira Sugiyama, minister of economic affairs, and Yasunori Nakayama, minister of political affairs.
