That is correct, countrymen. Vice President Leni is here in the “Land of Smiles.” Keep your eyes open at all times. Who knows you might bump into her somewhere 🙂
In a report from the Philippine Daily Inquirer which was originally quoted from Robredo’s office, The Vice President is being honored by the Thai Queen “for her dedication for women in her country to improve women’s rights and gender equality, including overcoming barriers to be a successful Asean woman leader.”
The Thai Women’s Day celebration and the commemoration of the 70th anniversary of King Bhumibol Adulyadej and the 84th birthday of Queen Sirikit, are being hosted by Thailand’s National Council for Women of Thailand, under the auspices of the Royal Patronage of Her Majesty the Queen, Ministry of Social Development and Human Security, Ministry of Interior and the Ministry of Education.
