President Hu Jintao's State Visit
The bilateral relations of the Philippines with the
People's Republic of China is one of the most important
relationships the Philippines has with any country in the twenty-
The relationship is founded on a long-standing
friendship between neighbors and shaped by centuries of interaction
between the Filipino and Chinese peoples.
As the Philippines and China mark this year the 30th
anniversary of their diplomatic ties that were formally established
on 9 June 1975, the relationship grows in strength and scope,
evolving on the basis of mutual respect, common interest and a
shared desire for broader cooperation for mutual benefit.
The State Visit of H.E. President Hu Jintao to the
Philippines on 26 - 28 April 2005 highlights the accomplishments of
the bilateral relationship and its new defining dimensions.
The visit focuses on
the new golden age of partnership that has emerged and is being
reinforced for the Philippines and China, with new possibilities for
growth and convergence in the future.
