P&G welcomes US envoy to RP

Leading consumer goods company Procter & Gamble (P&G) Philippines and the US-Philippines Society recently welcomed the US Ambassador to the Republic of the Philippines during a cocktail reception hosted at The Conservatory in The Peninsula Manila.
The welcome reception for the US Ambassador to the Philippines reinforced P&G’s partnership with the US embassy and its commitment to contribute to the socio-economic growth of the Philippines, which has been home to the US-based company’s oldest subsidiary outside North America for over 80 years.
“It is a privilege for P&G to host this welcome reception for Amb. Kim. P&G has partnered very closely with the US embassy for projects that improve Filipino lives. One such example is our Project Hope Stores that helped restore sari-sari store livelihood in typhoon-devastated areas in Leyte such as Tacloban, Tanauan and Palo and Eastern Samar,” said P&G Asia Pacific president Magesvaran Suranjan.
“We look forward to an even stronger and more active US-Philippines partnership with Ambassador Kim as the head of the U.S. Embassy,” he said.
During the reception, Kim expressed his commitment to working closely with colleagues in the Philippines in order to strengthen the economic ties between Manila and Washington.
Kim was sworn in as the US Ambassador to the Philippines last November 2016. Since his assignment to the country, he has sought to strengthen the long-standing partnership between both countries through pursuing the robust economic engagement between the US and the Philippines, and reinforcing efforts to promote inclusive and sustainable economic growth.
“We are very fortunate to have Ambassador Kim at the head of the US Embassy,” added P&G Philippines general manager Shankar Viswanathan.
“He has been conferred with several performance awards by the State Department for his outstanding managerial skills, open interpersonal style and ability to work well with numerous US government agencies on sensitive and complex policy issues and priorities,” he said.
Prior to his appointment, Kim served as the Special Representative for North Korea Policy and the Deputy Assistant Secretary in the Bureau of East Asia and Pacific Affairs at the US Department of State.
He has also served in a variety of positions in the East Asia Pacific region, including overseas assignments in Tokyo, Kuala Lumpur, and Hong Kong.
Joining the reception were colleagues from the US embassy, the American Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines, IT and Business Process Association of the Philippines, PAMURI, Tax Management Association of the Philippines, and P&G Philippines leadership teams and alumni.
