New York University in Abu Dhabi, in collaboration with The Philippine Embassy in the UAE held a lecture for a group of Development Majors who are about to visit the Philippines for their Global Education Study program this month.

The lecture was headed by Consul Rowena Pangilinan-Daquipil who shared the Philippines’ global achievements, ongoing developments, and countrywide challenges.

“I wanted to make sure that they know not just the basic information about the Philippines but also some of the challenges that the country faces and how the government is trying to address these challenges through various programs. I presented our Build Build Build project, the Philippine National Development Plan, the initiatives on migration, including the Global Compact for Migration passed last December and more,” shares Daquipil.

Consul Daquipil herself was a teacher by profession in 2010 before joining the Department of Foreign Affairs: “On behalf of the Philippine Embassy in UAE, I put on my previous teaching hat and delivered a lecture on the Philippines at NYU Abu Dhabi to a diverse group of students from multicultural backgrounds.”

With the Philippines as an interesting development case study considering its ongoing upward swing on key areas of development, Consul Daquipil is optimistic that the students will immerse themselves with the actual experience of living in the country and go back to the UAE filled with new ideas: “This class from NYUAD will analyze the Philippine development as a case. When you discuss the Philippines’ current conditions, it’s also important to discuss our geography, demography, our history. I wanted to give them a bird’s eye view,” said Daquipil.
