In addition, Atty. Tan assisted in the expansion of some Japanese financial institutions into the Philippines so that Japanese business sectors could be financially supported. In 2012 and 2013, Atty. Tan has also served as co-chair of the Philippines-Japan Economic Cooperation Committee (PHILJEC) and led several bilateral dialogues.

Ambassador Koshikawa closed his message by expressing his hope that Atty. Tan will remain steadfast in helping further deepen bilateral relations between Japan and the Philippines.
