During the ceremony, Ambassador Koshikawa lauded Mr. Jose in his congratulatory speech for the latter’s relentless efforts in contributing to our countries’ stronger economic ties. The Ambassador also expressed his hope that Mr. Jose continue to inspire Filipino innovators like him who aim to “develop creative solutions to address pressing issues in our society and participate in nation building.”

Romulo, Former Senator Richard Gordon, Sr., Former Ambassador to Japan Jose C. Laurel V, Former Ambassador to Canada Rodolfo D. Robles, Former Director-General of the Philippine Economic Zone Authority Lilia B. De Lima, and Nihongo Center Foundation President Philip Sanvictores.
