The British ambassador presented his credentials at 10:00 AM.
Met Andy Soriano on the Herald. He is ready to stop publishing the Herald provided Channel 13 and their radio stations operate. He is ready to have the ownership become public.
Asked him to get PICOP to use native raw materials like pine trees. And directed Sec. Bing Tanco to bring the suppliers of these raw materials and the pulp and paper companies together.
