Following the conferment of The Order of the Rising Sun, Gold and Silver Star last April 29, 2018 by the Government of Japan, Ayala Corporation (AC) Chairman Emeritus Jaime Zobel de Ayala paid a visit to the Japanese Ambassador’s residence in Forbes Park. He was accompanied by sons AC Chairman & CEO Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala and AC President & COO Fernando Zobel de Ayala, as well as AC Head of Corporate Support Services Ambassador Marciano A. Paynor, Jr., and AC Group Head of Public Affairs Jose Rene Gregory D. Almendras. He was received by Japanese Ambassador to the Philippines His Excellency Koji Haneda.

During the celebratory lunch, Zobel and party were treated to a Japanese meal with a Filipino twist. Zobel and Ambassador Haneda then gave toasts to commemorate the occasion and the prestigious honor. The Order of the Rising Sun is one of the highest distinctions bestowed by the Japanese government on a civilian.


Zobel’s leadership in AC, the oldest major conglomerate in the Philippines spanning a diverse range of businesses in real estate, banking, telecommunications, water, power, industrial technologies, infrastructure, healthcare and education has enabled many successful business partnerships with the Japanese, and has helped AC to promote a greater appreciation for Japanese culture through several Japanese-related exhibitions. Ultimately, Zobel’s contribution has helped to strengthen the economic and cultural bond between Japan and the Philippines over the course of his esteemed career.
