Greetings from Ambassador KOSHIKAWA Kazuhiko
It is my great honor and privilege to be appointed Ambassador of Japan to the Philippines. The relationship between our two countries is a shining example of cooperation and mutual understanding that our forebears have nurtured. I am delighted to have this opportunity to scale new heights of the bilateral relations and forge even closer friendship.
The formidable ties that bind Japan and the Philippines together have undoubtedly ushered us into the “golden age” of the Strategic Partnership. This incredible feat in our relations is one that encompasses a dynamic narrative of growth and trust. Through the years, Japan's commitment to bringing development closer to the grassroots and supporting the peace process and human security has brought forth remarkable results in the Philippines, which have bolstered our bilateral ties. Beyond the economic and political realms, our people-to-people bond has also persistently showcased the historical human and cultural connections that further fortify our partnership.
As my diplomatic mission here in the Philippines begins, I shall exert every possible effort to further galvanize the foundations that make our bilateral ties special. I look forward to working with the people of the Philippines in realizing my commitments.
Maraming salamat po!
