Addressing DPAAL members, Ambassador Trillo remarked on the challenges facing media officers in London and commended DPAAL for providing a useful platform for the media and diplomats to meet.
Ms Corral in her acceptance speech said she was honoured to be elected by her peers to lead such a dynamic diplomatic association in London. Once the formalities were over, DPAAL members enjoyed a convivial evening of talking and tapas washed down with some excellent Rioja.
