The 118th Philippine Independence Day was earlier celebrated in United Arab Emirates on June 03, 2016 (Friday). The national event was simultaneously held at Dalma Mall, Mussafah, in Abu-Dhabi and at the World Trade Center in Dubai, U.A.E.
This big event was led by our own Accredited Professional Organization (APO) the IIEE-UAE Chapter headed by Dr. Eldino Alberto V. Caballes being the tasked Chairman of the Philippine Independence Day Celebration and the Vice-Chairman of Bayanihan Council.
Some selected Abu-Dhabi area members were assigned to portray the Evolution of the Philippine Flag along with some other members of the Philippine Professional Organization – United Arab Emirates (PPO-UAE).
In Dubai area on the other hand the celebration was supported by our industrious engineers and electricians headed by our FilCom-DNE Representative Engr. Joel I. Foronda even during the preparation of the venue to provide the power wiring and installation requirements of the event. Both groups in Dubai and Abu-Dhabi provided logistics support to make the event happen.
The Government Officials from the Philippine Embassy in Abu-Dhabi and the Philippine Consulate General in Dubai expresses their heartfelt gratitude for the support and effort that the IIEE-UAE Chapter extended for the success of the celebration.
MABUHAY IIEE-UAE CHAPTER!
