Philippine Consul General Renato Dueñas also confirmed that this is the first time in 15 years that a Philippine president will be coming to the UAE.
Dueñas said that during the Philippine president’s meeting with the public at the Dubai World Trade Centre, he will be joined by Philippine Cabinet members.
The meeting will be open to the public on a “first come, first serve” basis, said the Philippine Consul General in Dubai. “There’s going to be limited slots,” Dueñas said.
COP28 will run from November 30 to December 12 at Expo City Dubai. The scheduled visit will be Marcos’ first official visit to the UAE. ICA/Expat Media
