Philippine Closed 10 Philippine Embassies and Consulates Offices in Europe

Closed Philippine Embassy in Havana, Cuba

Five of the 10 Philippine diplomatic posts due for closure this year have already ceased to operate, a senior Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) official said.

Rafael Seguis, DFA Undersecretary for Administration, said the diplomatic posts that were closed were:

  1. Philippine Embassy in Caracas in Venezuela;
  2. Philippine Embassy in Koror, Palau;
  3. Philippine Embassy in Dublin, Ireland;
  4. Philippine Consulate General in Barcelona, Spain, and
  5. Philippine Consulate General in Frankfurt, Germany.

The operation of these embassies and consulates ended as of July 31, 2012.

Seguis said the other five diplomatic posts scheduled for closure have already started scaling down operations for their closure on October 31. These are the:

  1. Philippine Embassy in Stockholm, Sweden;
  2. Philippine Embassy in Bucharest, Romania;
  3. Philippine Embassy in  Havana, Cuba;
  4. Philippine Embassy in  Helsinki, Finland and
  5. Philippine Consulate General in Saipan in Northern Mariana Islands.

The closure of the 10 diplomatic missions is part of the DFA's restructuring plan and austerity measures, Seguis said.

Savings from the closures are estimated at P100 million, which can be allocated to other cash-strapped posts that serve a greater number of Filipinos, he added.

"We are re-aligning our budget where they are most needed like in the Middle East," Seguis told reporters in an interview on Monday. "We need to maximize our resources and budget."

The nearest Philippine embassy or consulate will assume jurisdiction and functions of the closed diplomatic missions.

Before the closure of the five diplomatic posts, the Philippines had 94 diplomatic posts abroad, including:

  • 67 embassies,
  • 23 consulates, and four missions to international organizations.

The posts to be closed down were selected based on each of the post's performance as well as economic and political importance.

Filipino diplomatic personnel displaced by the shut down were absorbed by existing embassies and consulates, mainly in the Middle East, Seguis said.

The others, whose tours of duty have expired, were automatically recalled to the Home Office in Manila.

  15. I hardly create comments, however i did a few searching and wound
    up here "Philippine Closed 10 Philippine Embassies and Consulates Offices in Europe".

    And I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you
    don't mind. Is it simply me or does it appear like some of these remarks appear as if they are left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting on other online sites, I would like to follow everything new you have to post. Could you make a list of the complete urls of all your communal sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

  17. First of all I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick
    question in which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Appreciate it!

  21. I'm impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that's both equally educative and engaging,
    and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is an issue that too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i'm very happy that I stumbled across this in my hunt for something concerning this.
