FACULTY of Arts and Letters professor Jose David Lapuz has been elected vice president of the Philippine Council for Foreign Relations (PCFR).

“I am honored and humbled at the same time. After seven years in this council, they have finally given me a great position of responsibility,” Lapuz said. “It is also a way of acknowledging my contribution to international politics and foreign affairs.”

According to Lapuz, who is also a United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization commissioner, most of the members of the institution are faculty members of different universities nationwide. He said that electing him for the post means PCFR accepts the role of UST in foreign policy studies.

PCFR, the only institution of its kind with leading experts in foreign policy, aims to enhance foreign relations. It also aims to achieve the purposes and principles of the United Nations in maintaining international peace and security.

Lapuz plans to propose foreign affairs strategies with important implications for Philippine foreign relations. He also plans to initiate research information activities as well as publish books and journals on foreign policy. Elka Krystle R. Requinta
