The Republic of the Philippines celebrated its 14th anniversary of Philippine-Spanish Friendship Day last June 30th, as a reminder of the strong cultural and historical ties that unite both countries.

For this reason, the Spanish Chamber of Commerce in the Philippines, which this year also celebrates its 117th anniversary, and the Makati Business Club held a business networking luncheon at "The Peninsula Manila" hotel, attended by the Ambassador of Spain in the Philippines, Luis Antonio Calvo, as guest of honor.

In his keynote message, the Ambassador expressed optimism at the incoming government and confidence that certain sectors in the Philippine economy will be further liberalized under the Rodrigo Duterte presidency, and highlighted the opportunities this presents to Philippine and Spanish companies.

MBC Executive Director Peter Perfecto stressed that Philippines-Spain economic relations remain strong and are steadily rising due to increased bilateral trade and investment in both countries.

This celebration was attended by representatives of the main Spanish companies that are working in the country, such as Eptisa, which for two years has carried out a study of alternatives for improving the sewerage system in the cities of South Caloocan, Malabon and Navotas, and has recently been awarded a new consultancy to define the irrigation plan for the next ten years financed by the World Bank.
