OFFICIAL STATEMENT 156
Celebration of Spain-Philippines Friendship Day

​​The Government of Spain wishes to take the opportunity of the celebration, on Friday, 30 June, in the Philippines, of Friendship Day between this country and Spain, to welcome the commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between our two countries.

 
30/06/2017
Bound by a long history, the Philippines and Spain have found a way to transform shared values, forged over their common past into soundly grounded extensive relations framed in several texts, such as the General Treaty on Friendship and Cooperation signed in the year 2000.

Our shared cultural legacy must be preserved and enriched, to which end the Philippines can count on the interest of the Government of Spain in all areas relating to history, heritage, arts and language, while it also trusts that the programme to re-introduce the Spanish language into secondary education in the Philippines enjoys continuity in the coming years.

The Government of Spain maintains its interest in developing the peace processes in the Philippines. Support for these processes has been one of the constant elements of Spanish Cooperation in the Philippines, with different projects implemented by civil society, in particular in Mindanao. 

We look forward with optimism to developing the strategy of the Government of the Philippines to modernise the country’s infrastructure, which is so necessary for ensuring the creation of jobs and wealth. Our companies, which are among the world leaders in terms of public works, are interested in taking part in the implementation of this great project, in the same way as Philippine companies have recently made some major investments in our country.

The Government of Spain hopes that, based on its long friendship and particular historical ties, our countries can find a way to build increasingly closer relations based on the growth of our economic, cultural and human relations and on greater mutual understanding.
