Andrew Matheson is New Zealand's ambassador to the Philippines and has been in our home country since September 2008. Which is quite a coincidence because that was also the month and year that we migrated to New Zealand.
Mr Matheson has a blog hosted at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs & Trade. Hopefully, he will be updating it regularly so we can also have an appreciation of the growing New Zealand - Philippines relations.
His recent post about a conservation project in Camiguin island triggered happy memories of our vacation there with friends, and his topic on the possibility of having a direct flight between these two countries is definitely something we can relate to. It's turning out to be quite an interesting blog.
