Located in the sprawling city of Bangkok, the Embassy of the Philippines in the Kingdom of Thailand traces its history 70 years ago when the Treaty of Friendship was signed between the two countries in Washington D.C., United States of America on June 14, 1949.

Since then, both countries enjoy warm and friendly relations with each other, and were among the founding fathers of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) alongside Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore.

Filipinos in Thailand are highly respected, dominating particularly in the field of education, and hired as professionals by international corporations, while others flourish in the entertainment industry.

This year, Thailand hosts the ASEAN Summit with the theme, ‘Advancing Partnership for Sustainability’.
