100 Most Influential Filipinos in the Gulf: Mme Yoko Ramos – Wife to the Philippine Ambassador of the UAE


Beside every powerful man proudly stands a woman of grace, fortitude, and strength. Madame Yoko Ramos, the wife of Philippine Ambassador to the UAE Contancio Vingno Jr, is the perfect embodiment of that statement.  She believes that the role of women, is integral to society and shares, “Filipina women, through the practice of various professions, contribute to the economic well-being of their families, as well as to the development of communities wherever they may be in the world, through their skills and talents. One of the traits that sets us apart is our positive outlook in life, regardless of the circumstances that we are in.  In that sense, it is fair to say that we bring, wherever we may be, sunshine and joy of life.”


Further encouraging Filipinas to make significant contributions towards their country and community, Madame Yoko says, “I urge my fellow Filipinas to allow the world to see the best and most beautiful version of themselves. With this, we should make it a point to empower one another by equipping ourselves with eagerness and a curiosity to learn something new every day.”


On a mission to helping uplift the image of Filipinos in the UAE through goodwill within the diplomatic, government and community network, Madame Yoko has also devoted time towards pursuing a number causes near and dear to her.  She notes that being a part of projects such as the Philippine halal products launch in the UAE, the International Day on the Elimination of Violence Against Women event, as well as the Cancer Awareness Fashion Show, was not only fulfilling but enlightening.
