Philanthropist and sportsman Angel Ngu is the Flag Bearer of the Philippine delegation to the 29th Summer Universiade to be held in Taipei City from August 19 – 30 this year.
David Ong, president of the Federation of School Sports Association of the Philippines (FESSAP), announced the designation of Angel Ngu, the president of the Federation of Filipino Chinese Chamber of Commerce & Industry, Inc. (FFCCCII).
Ngu’s designation came after much-respected sports patron Alvin Tai Lian accepted FESSAP Board’s offer for him to be the country’s Head of Delegation to the Taipei Universiade.
“The FESSAP is very thankful of Businessman Angel Ngu and FFCCCII in their support of the country’s participation in the Taipei university games,” said David Ong. “It’s hard to find a legitimate sportsman/philanthropist whose sole motive is to help youth sports in our country. Businessman Angel Ngu is among the few. His advocacy to promote youth sports is noble as it enables our nationwide university student athletes to showcase their skills in an international competition such as Universiade that is billed by many as the Olympics at the university level.”
Alvin Tai Lian and David Ong both agrees added that Businessman Angel Ngu is a perfect choice as the Philippine flag bearer in the Taipei Universiade not only because of his business intelligence but also his humanitarian activities with the FFCCCII.
“These charitable projects have redound to upliftment of the poor and underprivileged with the establishment of various school rooms in the countryside and elsewhere, the holding of medical missions in the rural areas and the granting of scholarships to the less fortunate Filipinos,” said David Ong.
“It is for this reason that the FESSAP is naming businessman Angel Ngu to the position as Philippine flag bearer and the organization will be greatly honored of Mr. Ngu personal involvement in the Universiade.”
The formal acceptance by Ngu to the position will be held by the end of this month in a simple official ceremony to be held in Manila.
Aside from Taipei Universiade, the FESSAP looks forward to working with Angel Ngu in international competitions other than the Taipei Universiade. This includes the World University Championship in the various sports and sports competitions in Asia and Asia-Pacific.
Graham C. Lim, FESSAP secretary general, will be attending the Head of Delegation (HoD) in Taipei City to represent the country regarding the preparation on its regulations towards the 29th Summer Universiade in Taipei City next month.
The FESSAP is grateful to businessman Angel Ngu for having been a major player in its various activities and projects through the years.
