On 09 June 2022, H.E. Imelda M. Panolong, Philippine Ambassador to the Sultanate of Oman, received the Board of Directors of the Filipino Community Social Club (FILCOSOC) at the Sentro Rizal Hall of the Philippine Embassy. Ambassador Panolong congratulated the newly-constituted Board of Directors (BOD) and expressed her appreciation for the cooperation and assistance provided by FILCOSOC to the Embassy’s events. The BOD shared with the Ambassador their planned social activities and workshops for the rest of the year. They also conveyed their intent to collaborate with the Embassy and POLO-OWWA in programs that discuss local laws of the host government with the Filipino community as the target audience. Ambassador Panolong wished the Board of Directors the best in their endeavors and expressed her hope that the good relations between the Embassy and FILCOSOC that have built up over the years will continue to endure and strengthen. FILCOSOC is the only Filipino community organization that is duly registered with the Ministry of Social Development in Oman and recognized by the host government. Further, it is the umbrella organization of other affiliated Filipino community groups and/or associations that are active in the different regions of Oman. END.
