“Barong Tagalog Makes the Foreign Service”

FOR the first time last April 17, a Filipino diplomat presented his credentials wearing the Filipino national costume—the barong Tagalog. The diplomat was Dr. Melquiades J. Gamboa. He wore the native attire when he presented his letters of credence in Ceylon to which he is the Minister of the Philippines. Dr. Gamboa is also the Philippine Ambassador to India.
