PGMA arrives in San Francisco on her way to Chicago to meet Filipino community

Manila (12 November) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo arrived in San Francisco for a quick U.S. trip to address the United Nations Interfaith Conference on Dialogue of Civilizations on November 12 in New York City.

The President and her lean delegation landed at the San Francisco International Airport aboard a Philippine Airlines commercial flight at 5:30 p.m. (9:30 a.m. Tuesday in Manila).

Philippine Ambassador to the United States Willy Gaa led Filipino officials in welcoming the President who is staying overnight here before flying to Chicago Tuesday morning to meet with members of the Filipino community.

"The President will just have a quiet dinner with the Philippine delegation here tonight," according to Press Secretary Jesus G. Dureza, who is accompanying the President in her US trip.

After the Filipino community gathering in Chicago, President Arroyo will fly to New York to attend a high-level meeting on Interfaith and Inter-cultural Dialogue at the 63rd Session of the UN General Assembly on Wednesday.
