TACLOBAN CITY-Leyte Vice Governor Carlo Loreto is honored to be a delegate to the Philippine Center of Young in Governance (PCYL) –Australian Political Exchange Council (APEC) International Exchange Program.
Loreto is part of the 7-member delegation from the country to Australia for its annual international exchange program in partnership with APEC on October 8-14 2016.
“I am humbled by this invitation from APEC and honored to be among the selected few to be chosen by the Australian Political Exchange Council,” the vice governor said.
According to Loreto, the program is part of the PCYPL which aims to give Filipino leaders a firsthand experience on political and cultural dynamics of other countries and to enable leaders to gain global perspective on issues and to develop friendly relations with other countries.
Over the years, APEC has been carrying active and wide range political exchanges to enhance mutual cooperation between Australia, and other countries such as United States, Japan, China, Germany, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, United Kingdom and South Korea.
“It is with pride and enthusiasm that we look forward to learning about the important work that the Australian legislators do, and how this is meaningful for the people they work and represent” Loreto added.
The Australian Political Exchange Council values the contribution of its alumni and watches their individual careers with great interest.
Former delegates of the Council include many who are now in prominent political positions, including members of federal and state parliaments, and leaders in political and government organizations, trade unions and corporate Australia.
