Migrante Saudi Arabia
The Philippine Consulate in Jeddah has a new Consul General with the recent appointment of Con Gen Ezzedin Tago who was sworn on 24 December.
Con Gen Tago served in Baghdad, Iraq during the hostage crisis of Angelo dela Cruz and Roberto Tarongoy, from 2004-2005 and as 2nd secretary in the Philippine Embassy in Jakarta from 2003 to 2005. He was also the 3rd secretary and later 2nd secretary at the Philippine Embassy in Riyadh from 1999 to 2003.
Any thing new is a breath of fresh air and thus we welcome Con Gen Tago to Jeddah. Cheers!
A news report said he was asking for the "full support from the staff and community, assuring that he was open to discussing with them issues and activities concerning the community."
Migrante members in Jeddah would certainly keep that in mind.
