The Philippines and Denmark established diplomatic relations in 1946. The year 2016 marked 70 years of strong and continuous cooperation between the two nations. Denmark’s focus has been trade, and over the years many Danish companies and products have found their way to the Philippines.
Currently, the Philippines and Denmark have been partners in development, shipping, renewables, cultural exchanges, health technology, corporate responsibility, education and most of all, in labor, social services and trade.
In January 2015, the Embassy of Denmark in Manila re-opened thirteen years after it closed. The Embassy is an affirmation of the potential for expanding cooperation and trade between the two countries. Both countries have sent a number of delegations and missions to each other to further develop areas of cooperation. But even before that there are a number of well-known Danish companies which have made their way to the Philippines, such as Maersk, Lindberg AS and Sonion.
There are also a number of Filipino professionals present in most Danish companies both in the Philippines and in Denmark. In addition, these Filipino professionals are entitled to social security benefits under the same conditions applicable to Danish nationals as the Philippines and Denmark have launched a social security partnership.
The Philippine Embassy in Oslo remains committed to broadening relations between Denmark and the Philippines and is available to provide assistance to all members of the public.
