GMA expresses gratitude for highly-qualified daughter’s ambassador post

Former Philippine President and current Senior Deputy Speaker Gloria Macapagal Arroyo congratulated her second child and only daughter, Evangelina Lourdes “Luli” Arroyo-Bernas, on her confirmation as Philippine ambassador to Austria and thanked President Bongbong Marcos for the appointment and the members of the Commission on Appointments for the confirmation.

Mrs. Arroyo-Bernas was appointed ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary of the Philippines to the Republic of Austria. The post has concurrent jurisdiction over the Republic of Croatia, Republic of Slovenia and the Slovak Republic.

Macapagal-Arroyo also thanked members of the media who mentioned Ambassador Arroyo-Bernas’ qualifications and stressed the latter had passed the difficult exams for Foreign Service Officer (FSO) in 2000.

Ambassador Arroyo-Bernas was one of only three passers out of over three thousand examinees of that year’s FSO exams.

Ambassador Arroyo-Bernas holds a Master of Science in Foreign Service (MSFS) degree from Georgetown University in Washington DC, USA, and was former chair of the board of trustees of the National Museum.
