Mr. Shoichiro Toyoda, honorary chairman Toyota Motors Corp. arrived on board a private Gulfstream V business jet on April 21, 2010. Mr. Toyoda is visiting Manila again because he was awarded the Order of Lakandula with Rank of Grand Cross by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.
The Order of Lakandula is one of the highest honors given by the Republic of the Philippines. It is an order of political and civil merit, awarded in memory of Lakandula’s dedication to the responsibilities of leadership, prudence, fortitude, courage and resolve in the service of one’s people.
