President Duterte has appointed former acting Foreign Secretary Enrique Manalo the country’s ambassador to Germany.

In a set of appointment papers released on Friday, Mr. Duterte also named Foreign Assistant Secretary Leo Herrera-Lim the country’s ambassador to Denmark.


Their appointments were signed by the President earlier this week. Manalo, a seasoned diplomat, served as acting secretary of the Department of Foreign Affairs from March to May 2017.

This was after the Commission on Appointments rejected the appointment of then Secretary Perfecto Yasay Jr. Herrera-Lim previously served as Philippine consul general in Los Angeles, Chicago and London. —JULIE M. AURELIO
