Philippine Ambassador to Brunei Darussalam
7 October 2013

Ambassador Nestor Ochoa is the eighth Philippine envoy assigned to Brunei Darussalam since diplomatic relations was established between the two countries on 1 January 1984.

He discusses the significance of President Benigno S. Aquino III’s attendance to the 23rd ASEAN Summit and Related Summits as well as the crucial role that the Philippines play in the region, given the fact that the President made an intervention in the 7th East Asia Summit (EAS) last year in Cambodia regarding the Declaration on the Conduct of Parties in the South China Sea and the Code of Conduct (COC).

The Ambassador also tackled the stronger relations between Brunei and the Philippines including the profile of Filipinos working and greatly contributing to the development of the Sultanate.
