Department of Foreign Affairs Co-Sponsors Forum on RP-India Bilateral Ties

Posted: 18 Sep 2009 06:00 PM PDT

19 September 2009 – As part of the celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Philippines-India bilateral relations, the Department, in cooperation with the Asian Center of the University of the Philippines, the Foreign Service Institute, and the Embassy of India, will organize a Forum-Conference on Philippines-India bilateral relations. Entitled “Bridging the Distance: Philippines and India Relations in the 21st Century”. The forum will be held on 23 September 2009, at the NISMED building, U.P. campus, Diliman, Quezon City.

Experts on India led by former Senator Leticia R. Shahani, Sr. Ashok Lahiri, a member of the Board of the Asian Development Bank, U.P. Asian Center Dean Aileen SP. Baviera, Defense Undersecretary Antonio Santos, retired Philippine ambassadors to India, and others, will deliver insightful papers, presentations and reactions on the current state of the Philippines-India bilateral ties and prospects, challenges and opportunities for the future.

Acting Secretary of Foreign Affairs Franklin M. Ebdalin has been invited to open the Forum and outline the current state of the Philippines-India bilateral relations.

The Philippines established diplomatic relations with India on 16 November 1949, with the opening of the Philippine Legation in New Delhi, headed by the late Ambassador and later Secretary of Foreign Affairs Narciso Ramos. The Philippines-India Treaty of Friendship, signed 11 July 1952 in Manila provides that “there shall be perpetual peace and everlasting amity between the Republic of the Philippines and the Republic of India and their peoples.”

Other events are being held to commemorate the 60th anniversary of Philippines-India relations. The Forum hopes to highlight the “bridges” between the Philippines and India. These are found in IT-enabled business process outsourcing, trade and investments, cooperation in various fields such as defense, agriculture, science and technology, and in people-to-people exchanges, including greater awareness and understanding between the two countries.
