Overview of relations between The Philippines and the EU
Bookmark and Share PDF Print E-mail

Click to zoom imageThe Philippines established diplomatic ties with practically all the original 15 EU Member States in 1948.  With the European Community itself, the Philippines established formal ties on 12 May 1964. The Embassy started to serve as a Mission to the European Communities with Ambassador Vicente I. Singian as its Head of Mission.

The signing of the ASEAN-EC Cooperation Agreement in 1980 strengthened Philippine relations with the EU.  Since then, political and institutional links between the two regional associations have flourished. In 1984, the Philippines and the European Commission

concluded a Framework Agreement for Development Co-operation that provided the basis for the EC-assisted development projects in the Philippines.

The EC opened its Delegation Office to the Philippines in May 1991 following the influx of official development assistance to the country after democracy was restored under the Aquino Administration in 1986.

With the end view of providing a more comprehensive framework to the relations between the Philippines and the European Union, the European Commission and the Philippine government are now negotiating a Partnership Cooperation Agreement that would cover a wide range of areas such as politico-security, economic, trade, socio-cultural, education, technology and development cooperation.
