When old friends have new ideas - The Philippines and Europe go back a long way. Knowing where we are coming from, we are moving forward together.

Together we're investing in sustainable technology so we can protect our environment and power our shared future. We are working together to achieve universal healthcare, inclusive growth and stronger governance that can tackle corruption.
The EU-Philippine partnership is a world of inspiring opportunities waiting to be discovered.
