Philippine Honorary Consul to Lithuania Atty. David Soloveicikas and Ambassador Patricia Ann V. Paez
Philippine Ambassador to Lithuania Ms. Patricia Ann V. Paez and Philippine Honorary Consul to Lithuania Atty. David Soloveicikas held consultations on how to infuse vigor into Philippine-Lithuania relations during their meeting on 26 January 2016. Honorary Consul Soloveicikas informed Ambassador Paez the Lithuania has one of the most innovative laws within the European Union on public or government procurement and this could be an area for possible bilateral engagement. He also mentioned the availability in Lithuania of technologies for the conversation of liquid wastes into potable water which could be for cities, residential areas, or even for household use. They also discussed the present bilateral trade profile and how this could be improved. The Philippines’ first-ever participation in Lithuania’s international tourism fair called “ADVENTUR 2016” held from 22 January to 24 January 2016, after more than 24 years of diplomatic ties, breathed new life into the bilateral ties. The Philippine Honorary Consulate assisted the Philippine Embassy based in Warsaw in its participation to this annual event which drew thousands of Lithuanians.
