13 February 2015. The Philippine Ambassador to Belgium, Luxembourg and the EU, H.E. Victoria S. Bataclan, paid a courtesy call on the Hon. Vincent Paul Marie Van Quickenborne, Mayor of the Municipality of Kortrijk, Belgium to express the Embassy's support to the forthcoming official visit of the City of Kortrijk to Cebu City from 20 February until 2 March 2015. Kortrijk and Cebu have an existing city to city cooperation since 2005.


Mayor Quickenborne related that this year's visit will focus on climate change through exchanges of knowledge and expertise and citizen's participation on the issue. The cooperation also brings the people of the both cities in a context of international cooperation and solidarity. The visit also aims to strengthen the contacts between both cities and prepare projects focusing primarily on climate change, education (Post graduate program-internship), youth exchange program, humanitarian assistance, and cultural exchange.

Deputy Vice Mayor Bert Herrewyn will lead Kortrijk delegation.

Ambassador Bataclan commended the continuous cooperation efforts of Kortrijk and conveyed the Philippines' deep appreciation for ongoing efforts in support of relief operations for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Municipality of San Francisco, Camotes Islands, north-east of Cebu City.

PH Assumes as Chair of ASEAN Brussels Committee

The Philippines has assumed as Chair of the ASEAN Brussels Committee, with Her Excellency Ambassador Victoria S Bataclan chairing the first ABC meeting of the year on 22 January in the Philippine Embassy.

The ABC brings together the Ambassadors or Heads of Missions of ASEAN embassies in Brussels to exchange views on issues concerning ASEAN, including specifically relations with the European Union and partners in Europe, and to discuss ways to promote ASEAN to European society and the institutions of the EU.

The year 2015 marks a new chapter in ASEAN-EU relations following an agreement between the foreign ministers of ASEAN and the EU in July 2014 to prepare a roadmap this year to upgrade the relationship to a strategic partnership. In view of this, the Philippines, under its 6-month chairmanship, aims to further promote cooperation and coordination with officials of the EU institutions and other Brussels-based international organisations, as well as officials of the Belgian and Luxembourg governments.

The Philippines also hopes to lay the groundwork for cultural and other public diplomacy initiatives to raise awareness of ASEAN among the general public in the EU, especially with the launch of the ASEAN Economic Community later in the year. The EU is among ASEAN’s top trading partners with trade in goods amounting to €178.6 billion in 2013. As a region, the EU is the largest investor in ASEAN, investing an average of around €13.6 billion per year for the period 2005-2012. In 2013, EU companies invested nearly US$27 billion (about €23.7 billion), representing 22.3% of ASEAN’s foreign direct investments.
