18 June 2018

Ambassador Jose Manuel Romualdez deemed it fitting to hold the Philippine Embassy’s 120th Philippine Independence Day celebration at the Trump International Hotel, an elegant and historic venue in Washington, D.C., for this milestone occasion. The event provided an opportunity to celebrate not only this milestone year for the Philippines, but also the close friendship between the Philippines and the US. The Philippine Embassy showcased Filipino culture and cuisine, including Chef Abie Mateo’s award-winning sisig from this year’s Embassy Chef Challenge. 

The Philippine Embassy will continue to deepen its ties with the US. As a foreign mission, the Philippine Embassy does not get involved in the domestic issues of the host country. ###
