Philippine Ambassador to the Kingdom of Thailand Mary Jo Bernardo-Aragon on Monday said that Thai people are excited to see President Rodrigo Duterte as he makes a three-day official visit tomorrow, Tuesday.
In an interview with the Philippine media delegation in the Philippine Embassy in Bangkok, Aragon said Thais have been excited with the plans and programs of Duterte.
“As a matter of fact, they’re excited with his forthcoming visit. Some of them even want to join the meeting with the Filipino community,” she said.
“However, this is an opportunity we would like to reserve for the Filipinos in Thailand,” he added.
Duterte is set to meet with the members of the Filipino community on Wednesday 7 p.m., Bangkok time, at the Royal Thai Navy Headquarters in Bangkok.
Aragon said all of the 48 Filipino community groups were invited to the said event and that 1,900 have already confirmed their attendance with more requesting to attend.
