12 September 2022 - PH Ambassador to Korea Ma. Theresa Dizon-De Vega paid a courtesy call on ROK Representative Jung Choun Sook ahead of her parliamentary delegation’s visit to the Philippines. Both gender and development advocates, Ambassador De Vega and Representative Jung had a vibrant discussion on gender and development initiatives in the PH and ROK legislative agendas.
Ambassador De Vega also took the meeting as an opportunity to inform the Representative about the volunteer work of Filipina migrants in South Korea in women’s shelters around the country, which Rep. Jung acknowledged as an important advocacy in promoting the overall welfare of women. Both sides also looked forward to working together to further promote gender equality and inclusivity, especially in the multicultural setting.
Representative Jung will be in Manila to meet with key women leaders and advocates on gender and development in the legislative and the executive branch. The Philippine Embassy in Korea wishes Rep. Jung and the rest of her parliamentary delegation a productive trip to the Philippines. END
