About

We are to celebrate the Independence Day of the Republic of the Philippines. Philippines is the neighboring country of the south and has a long and deep relationship with Japan. With President Duterte, the relation between the two countries has been maintained well, and the community-level exchanges are becoming active day by day. That is, we have been acting to aim the mutual understanding of our friendship and goodwill between the two countries as well as the people in Philippines. We have successfully received about 150,000 visitors in Japan last year. The goal of this initiative is to provide a space for such exchange where people of Japan and Philippines both enjoy, to encourage many people to appreciate the beauty of the Philippines. Also, I would like to introduce the activities of Japanese companies that are the leading role in economic exchanges based on the agreement of both governments. This year, people of Philippines with overflowing energy and many people in Japan who love the Philippines will cooperate and make it a better event than last year.

海洋アジアの重要なメンバーであり、我が国と長く深い関係にある南の隣国、フィリピン共和国の独立記念日を祝うイベントです。
 ドゥテルテ大統領の就任以来、両国の関係は、かつてないほどに良好で、我々民間交流も日に日に活発化しています。そうしたなか、私たちは、在日フィリピン人の皆さんとともに両国のさらなる友好親善と相互理解とを目指して活動して参りました。
 本イベントは、昨年延べ約15万人の来場者を迎えて成功を収めましたが、この取組みの目指すところは、日比両国の人々が楽しみながら交流する場を提供すること、そしてフィリピンの美しさを一人でも多くの方々に感じてもらうことにあります。また、両国政府の合意に基づく経済交流の主役となる日系企業の活躍を紹介する場にもなりたいと思います。
 今年も、パワーあふれる在日フィリピン人とフィリピンを愛する多くの日本人とが協力し合って、昨年に優るイベントにしていきます。
