Before the visit to the ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity Headquarters, H.E. Ambassador Souza e Silva, with Deputy Chief of Mission Minister Sérgio Taam and Head of Political Sector Counselor Ricardo dos Santos Poletto had a fun and nice tour inside the Makiling Botanic Gardens. Their visit last 14th of February 2023 was to showcase one of the ASEAN Heritage Parks here in the Philippines which is the Mount Makiling Forest Reserve. The whole tour was very enjoyable and both parties learn from each other through different stories about each country. The main focus of the visit was to show the unique flora of the Makiling and the Philippines.
