    Today Deputy Foreign Minister Marek Magierowski presented the Ambassador of the Republic of the Philippines in Warsaw, Patricia Paez, with a verbal note officially informing the Philippine authorities about plans to open a Polish Embassy in Manila with effect from 2 January 2018.

    “We are happy that the circumstances have allowed us to take this decision about opening a Polish Embassy in Manila. And by this I mean global prospects in economic relations, and the strong economic growth in both the Philippines and Poland,” Deputy Minister Marek Magierowski told the meeting.

    “Polish entrepreneurs are increasingly interested in new and promising markets, so the primary task of the new mission will be to facilitate contacts between companies from both countries,” said the deputy chief of Polish diplomacy.

    Ambassador Paez welcomed the Polish government’s decision, and said she could see much potential for collaboration between businesspeople from our countries given the Philippine government’s plans to expand its national infrastructure.

    Poland and the Republic of the Philippines established diplomatic relations on 22 September 1973. According to the OECD, the country is one of Southeast Asia’s most vibrant economies. Possible areas of Polish-Philippine economic cooperation include the defence sector, green technologies, construction, shipbuilding, transport, automotive industry, food production, and chemicals. The value of trade between our countries was USD 397.7 million in 2016.
