Philippine - Austria Relations 75 years

On June 20th 2022 the Philippine Embassy invited the Vienna UN Team of WFWPI to celebrate 75th Anníversary of Philippine-Austrian relations and 124th Philippine Independance Day (June 15th).

We met in the historical room of the City Hall in Vienna in the evening. HE Ms. Irene Susan Natividad Charge d’Affaires Philippines, Special Ambassador from Philippines and Representative of Austrian National Government and Municipality of City of Vienna explained to the invited guests the history of the development of the relationship between Philippines and Austria. All started with the help of young Philippine nurses to the Austrian hospitals after the end of WWII.

We could listen to wonderful music performances given by young Filipino musicians.

Today about 30 000 Filipino people, 3 generations, live in different parts of Austria and are well organised in Filippino-Austrian Association. Most of them actively support their home land Philippines.

At the end of the evening we could enjoy Austrian-Filipino cuisine and refresh our relationships.

We look forward to future activities and projects for the wellbeing of both countries.

With thankful hearts
