Germany and the Philippines

On 08th October 2014 the Federal Republic of Germany and the Republic of the Philippines celebrated the 60th anniversary of the establishment of their diplomatic relations.

The year 1961 marked both the beginning of the official development cooperation, which has proven a remarkable impact on people's lives in the Philippines, and the opening of the Goethe-Institut Philippinen (German Cultural Center). Numerous academic linkages and the German School in Manila (founded in 1980) contribute to an intensive cultural exchange. 

In 2008, the German-Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GPCCI) was established further promoting and strengthening ties between the two countries.
