Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat and the Department of Tourism (DOT) family joins the Filipino nation in conveying joyful and proud congratulations to our very own newly-crowned Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Elisa Magnayon Gray.
Amidst Ms. Gray's preparations prior to heading for Thailand, she took precious time to do a series of video clips promoting unique and fascinating destinations and diverse cultures: Luzon's Rizal Park, and world-renowned El Nido, Palawan; the resilience of the Visayan people particularly in Tacloban City and Mindanao's multi-faceted South Cotabato.
Throughout the Miss Universe competition, Miss Gray evoked the Filipino people's essential attributes of friendliness, cheerfulness, hospitality and kindness when she was around the representatives of different nations.
A passionate advocate of Philippine tourism and a partner of the DOT in and out of the Miss Universe stage, Miss Gray has raised our flag through her words and actions. She has single-handedly led more people all over the world to discover that, indeed, it is more fun in the Philippines.
Take Part in the Public Diplomacy Campaign “Deutschlandjahr USA”!
From October 2018 until the end of 2019, Germany and its deep ties to the U.S. will be on display all across the United States. The campaign will travel across the entire U.S., bringing with it a collection of events and exhibits highlighting the unique importance of transatlantic Relations.
Deutschlandjahr USA is a comprehensive and collaborative campaign of the German Federal Foreign Office, the Goethe-Institut, and with the support of the Federation of German Industries (BDI), with the goal of presenting today’s Germany to people across the entire U.S.
The public diplomacy campaign will showcase how closely the two countries are linked by heritage, common values, and shared interests, illustrating how a brighter future is possible if we tackle global challenges together through focusing on dialogue, exchange, and cooperation between people.
The campaign aims to convey a multifaceted, modern image of Germany in the U.S. All areas relevant to society – from business and industry, politics, education, culture, science, civil society, to sports – will be explored. Significant visibility will be achieved by consolidating activities and stakeholders, as well as through public, high-profile formats and targeted media efforts.
Germany and the U.S. are connected through a centuries-long common history. German immigrants have helped shape the development of the United States, while the successful development of post-war Germany is inextricably linked to US engagement. The Deutschlandjahr USA 2018/19 campaign builds on this success story and aims to intensify the transatlantic dialogue.

Wang Yi Meets with Co-Chairs of the Intergovernmental Negotiations on the UN Security Council Reform
On January 18, 2018, Foreign Minister Wang Yi met with visiting Co-Chairs of the Intergovernmental Negotiations on the United Nations (UN) Security Council Reform, including Permanent Representative of Georgia to the UN Kaha Imnadze and Permanent Representative of the United Arab Emirates to the UN Lana Zaki Nusseibeh. Wang Yi expressed that China supports the reform of the UN Security Council. The only correct direction of the reform is increasing the representativeness and voice of developing countries and giving more small and medium-sized countries more opportunities to participate in the decision-making process of the UN Security Council. The reform must conform to the principle that it should be led by member states of the UN. Extensive consensus should be reached and a package solution should be adopted through sufficient consultation.
