SHANGHAI 12 December 2018 – Consul General in Shanghai Wilfredo R. Cuyugan received a group from the United Architects of the Philippines-Shanghai Chapter (UAP-SC) led by President Architect Edgardo T. Budoy on 05 December 2018.

As current president, Architect Budoy aspired to turn the UAP-SC into a “bridge between the Philippines and China, as well as a bridge to other fields and professions.” He said UAP-SC had been active in promoting the architecture profession in mainland China and in upgrading the skills of its members through seminars.

For his part, Consul General Cuyugan commended UAP-SC for representing Filipino architects in China, and for reflecting Filipino proficiency and excellence in architecture and related fields.

In recalling the contributions of Filipino architects and the role they played in Shanghai’s development, the Consul General likened them to Filipino diplomats in projecting the best qualities of the Filipino people.
