The U.S. Embassy in Manila has launched a new blog that focuses on Mindanao as well as on the many partnerships between the United States, the Government of the Philippines, and the people of Mindanao.
The new Mindanao blog, entitled “Peace, Prosperity and Partnership in Mindanao,” includes information on how to participate in US Embassy programs that are offered in the Island of Mindanao. Peace, Prosperity and Partnership are the main thematic approaches of the U.S. Embassy in diplomatic engagement with Mindanaoans and the Philippine government. Hence, the name. The new US Embassy Manila blog also features conversations with young Mindanao leaders and updates on cultural programs, health initiatives and business innovations that are supported by various U.S. government agencies.
US Ambassador Harry K. Thomas Jr. noted, “Every time I visit Mindanao I am impressed with its rich cultural diversity, the enthusiasm of its youth, and its tremendous potential. We are trying to do our part to help create opportunities, foster understandings, and promote good governance and human rights.”
Ambassador Thomas also talked about this new US Embassy blog when he visited Cagayan de Oro recently.

Congratulations and thanks to the US Embassy for coming up with this blog! I’m sure it will help a lot of Mindanaoans not only in terms of providing up-to-date news and information but in creating more opportunities for Mindanao and its people.
