Hjayceelyn M.Quintana

Ambassador of the Republic of the Philippines to the UAE

What I do:

As an ambassador, I reach out to my one million compatriots, providing them with fresh ideas and inspiration in order to raise their profile in the UAE and to encourage them to be positive contributors to society. I also help in addressing gender issues by connecting with relevant institutions in the UAE.

My milestone moment:

Leading flagship programmes that help in promoting cultural diversity through events in the Year of Zayed and the Year of Tolerance. These are all aimed at bridging the two peoples and two nations by developing cultural linkages.

Up next:

I am planning to initiate a series of international business and cultural outreach activities that will lead up to achieving the vision of a strong Philippine presence at the World Expo 2020 in Dubai.
