Expressing appreciation on behalf of Secretary of Foreign Affairs Teodoro Locsin, Jr., Undersecretary Malaya said “it is important not only to do well in one’s job but to do so when no one is watching.” He further stated that the dedication and commitment to public service of the seven contributes to the achievement of the overall mission and vision of the Department of Foreign Affairs.
