Most Influential Filipinos in the Gulf: Ambassador Alfonso Ver – Trailblazer

 

AMBASSADOR ALFONSO VER

Embassy of the Philippines – Bahrain

 

Ambassador Alfonso Ver moved to Bahrain to assume Head of Post for the Philippine government in 2015.  This was his first assignment as an ambassador.  Just over a year hence, the 60,000 strong Filipino community has warmed up to his hands-on leadership style that has made him a much-loved figure in the island nation.

As the head of the community, Ambassador Ver shares that his work is focused on further strengthening all aspects of relations and mutually-beneficial ties between the Philippines and Bahrain.  This includes initiatives in growing economic relations, fostering greater exchange and cooperation in trade investments, tourism, as well as culture and education.  The Ambassador adds, “At the same time we shall continuously strive to do our best to respond to the needs of Filipinos – from rendering efficient consular services to the promotion of their welfare and protection of their rights.”

Known for being an open and approachable diplomat, the Ambassador has made interacting directly with Filipinos integral in his function as the primary custodian of the community’s welfare.  He says he likes to mingle directly with clients at the Embassy, helping out in any way he can to get a first-hand understanding of what people think and feel.   The Ambassador also underlines the importance of the role played by the Embassy for the Filipino people – that of a partner which will remain committed to safeguarding their interests and rights, while they do their best to achieve their hopes and dreams for themselves and their families.
