Local Statements

"The EU and the Philippines work constructively and productively together in a close partnership in many contexts and areas, including, of course, in the UN context. The cooperation covers a very wide range of subjects, including trade, where this year the Philippines made extraordinary progress on its exports to the EU.

The recent visit of the delegation of the "International Delegates of the Progressive Alliance" to the Philippines on 8-9 October was not a “European Union mission”, as falsely reported by some media outlets. The European Union was not part of the organisation or planning of that visit - neither the Delegation of the European Union in the Philippines nor the European Union institutions in Brussels. The statements made by the Progressive Alliance during its visit to the Philippines were made solely on behalf of the Progressive Alliance and do not represent the position of the European Union. The Delegation continues to operate and function normally, and is committed to working constructively and productively with the Philippines for the benefit of the population".
