June 9, 1975, The Philippines Established Diplomatic Relations with China.

Today in Philippine History, June 9, 1975, the Republic of the Philippines and the People’s Republic of China signed a Joint Communique in Beijing formally establishing diplomatic relations between the two countries at the ambassadorial level.

The opening statement of the Joint Communique of the Government of the People’s Republic of China and the Government of the Republic of the Philippines states that the two governments “desiring to promote the traditional friendship…have decided upon mutual recognition and the establishment of diplomatic relations at the ambassadorial level.”

The joint communique was signed by the late Premier Zhou Enlai and the late Philippine President Ferdinand Edralin Marcos.

Related to this, on January 24, 2002, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo signed Proclamation No. 148, s. 2002 declaring June 9 of every years as Filipino-Chinese Friendship Day. In the “Whereas” clauses, the following were stated, “the Philippines and China are neighbors in the Asia Pacific sharing a tradition of friendship dating back to ancient days; friendly contacts, cultural exchanges, and economic and trade relations between the two countries have been increasing through the years; and the continuing friendship between the peoples of the Philippines and China will enhance the mutually beneficial relations between the two countries and also contribute to the peace and harmony in the Asia Pacific region.”
