The Philippines is one of Australia’s longest-standing bilateral relationships. We have shared interests, supported by strong people-to-people links. Australia’s interests in the Philippines will be pursued through assisting the Philippine Government with the development of a well-managed and stable government and a more prosperous, inclusive and open economy. A more open economy will not only benefit Filipinos, but also allow both nations to continue to pursue a mature economic partnership.
