Manila – 4 October 2019 – The Philippines-Australia Business Council (PABC) made a courtesy call to Sydney Australia Consul-General Ezzedin H. Tago. With PABC Past Chairs Albert Garcia (2008-2012) and Antonio V. Enriquez (2013-2016), the group took the opportunity to discuss how to further create engagement and dialogue with the Consular office and the Consul-General himself on a number of bilateral issues, specifically the matter of the Social Security Agreement (SSA), which the PABC continues to champion on behalf of the Filipino community in Australia.

Moving forward, Garcia, a Sydney resident, would be the more practical choice to coordinate on behalf of the PABC in Australia, should the group’s presence be needed.

Aside from being the previous Chairman of the Philippines-Australia Business Council from 2013 – 2016, Antonio Enriquez also represents OLLI Consulting Group, Inc. as its Managing Director.
