The APBC and Diversified Technology Solutions International (DTSI) Group invite you to join us at a welcome reception for Philippine Vice President Leni Robredo.

The Vice President and other leading lights will talk about women empowerment in a panel discussion.

Vice President Robredo is a lawyer and social activist known for her advocacy of good governance and human rights. Her years as a lawyer were spent providing legal aid to indigent farmers, fisherfolk, indigenous people, labourers, abused women and children. Prior to her current position, she served as the Congresswoman of the 3rd District of Camarines Sur.

She is a staunch champion of women empowerment, making this one of the pillars of Angat Buhay, the Vice President's anti-poverty flagship program. The program links women across the nation with private companies and institutions, which then provide them with livelihood opportunities.
