Greetings from Manila and your FICAC East Asia Regional Committee.

After the First One held successfully in Bangkok, Thailand way back in 2007, we are now pleased to invite you to the Second FICAC East Asia Regional Conference and World Fair which is now scheduled for:

Date: Friday-Sunday, November 19-21, 2010
Venue: The Peninsula Manila Hotel and other venues in Makati City, Metro Manila, Philippines.

Your host organizer, the Consular Corps of the Philippines looks forward to welcoming you, your members, spouses/guests to this important gathering of all Consular Corps and Associations in our region and beyond.

We have prepared a very interesting program, interactive meetings with our FICAC officers and top Philippine leaders, exciting fellowship events and post conference options for tours of the Philippine’s top destinations.

The Philippine Department of Tourism and other public and private agencies have extended support to us in assuring the best rates for accommodations and amenities for conference participants. At the same time, we have made arrangements with Philippine Airlines for special airfare discounts for delegates. Also, if you would need assistance from us for the issuance of your Philippine visas, please let us know.

Kindly refer to the attached program of activities, downloadable registration forms and other information for your consideration and dissemination to your members. Meanwhile, please encourage your members to mark these dates in their calendars and to make Manila the place to be on November 19-21.

Together, let us journey to greater friendships, understanding and cooperation for the good of FICAC under the action call of our President, Hon. Arnold Foote, that is: THE WAY FORWARD.

With assurances of the high esteem and consideration of your colleagues in the Philippines, we remain,


Sincerely yours,

Honorary Consul of Cote d’Ivoire in the Philippines
