On Feb. 8, 2019, Chinese Consul and Head of Post to Laoag Zhou Youbin paid a courtesy call to Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr., the honorable former senator of the Philippines.
Consul Zhou highly appreciated Mr. Marcos Jr. and his family for their long-term commitment to carrying forward the traditional friendship between the two countries and peoples.
