"The mission of the US-Philippines Society is to build on the rich and longstanding
historical ties between the United States of America and the Philippines.

…and to bring that unique relationship to the 21st century."

Message From Ambassador John F. Maisto

Ambassador John F. Maisto

This summer’s Board of Directors meeting in Manila laid the groundwork for the Society’s 2016-17 programs during a period of political transition in both countries. Our productive three-day mission to Manila and Davao was highlighted by a farewell call on President Aquino and a two-hour meeting with President Duterte and members of his economic team.

Our directors shared perspectives on the Society’s role in reaching American audiences, learned more about the new administration’s policy priorities, encouraged visits by public and private sector leaders, and promoted exchanges in areas of business, technology and education.

We look forward to discussions with top level Philippine foreign and economic policy officials in Washington in the fall, as well as continuing program plans to promote a better understanding of today’s strategic challenges, shared US-Philippines policy interests, and rich history.

Ambassador John F. Maisto
Society President
