Brussels, 14 October 2011 - Newly-appointed Ambassador to the Kingdom of Belgium, Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and Head of the Philippine Mission to the European Union H.E. Victoria S. Bataclan paid courtesy call on the European Commission Chief of Protocol, Mr. Nicolas de la Grandville, to hand deliver the copy of her Letters of Credence to the President of the European Council, Mr. Herman Van Rompuy, and to the President of the European Commission, Mr. Jose Manuel Barrosso.

During the meeting, Ambassador Bataclan reaffirmed to the EU official the excellent relationship that exists between the Philippines and the EU and conveyed to him that she looks forward to working closely with the various EU institutions.  She cited the ongoing ASEM conference on Interfaith Dialogue in Manila wherein the EU lent its support, as well as EU's keen interest in the establishment of an ASEAN centre for conflict resolution and peace governance.

Mr. de la Grandville mentioned that ASEAN's experience is valued by the EU because the latter learns from ASEAN cooperation and how its member states pursue close collaboration with each other.  The EU official shared his views on the ongoing European integration, and informed Ambassador Bataclan of the 17 Eurozone members' efforts being made to address the current Eurozone crisis, including the Greek sovereign debt crisis.

Ambassador Bataclan also mentioned to the EU official the soon to be carried out important projects between the Philippines and the EU foremost of which is the signing of the framework of the Partnership and Cooperation Agreement (PCA). - END
