Commemorative medal

A Filipina who has served at the Norwegian Ambassador’s residence in Berne, Switzerland for three decades and worked under ten Norwegian ambassadors to that European country was recently bestowed His Majesty, the King’s Commemorative Medal for her loyal service.

According to the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), Alice Javier recently received the decoration given to personnel who work at Norwegian missions and residences in recognition for special services from Norwegian Ambassador to Switzerland Rolf Trolle Andersen in the presence of Philippine Ambassador to Switzerland Leslie Baja.

Ambassador Andersen said Javier, who left the Philippines for Switzerland in 1983, has imbibed three cultures in her work place­-Filipino, Norwegian and Swiss, bringing a perfect fusion to an outstanding service. (Roy C. Mabasa)
