"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

Congratulations to the Philippines on its ASEAN leadership this year as the organization marks its 50th anniversary.

Under Manila’s chairmanship, the ten nations of ASEAN and their dialogue partners will engage in a series of high level forums to advance economic, humanitarian and strategic goals in Southeast Asia and through the broader Asia-Pacific region.

The United States has supported the ASEAN for over 40 years. The US-ASEAN partnership spans economic engagement, security, rule of law, sustainable development, human rights, and people-to-people ties.

While progress and cooperation continue to define ASEAN and the Philippines in the 21st century, challenges remain. We think especially of the 400,000 persons displaced by the conflict in Marawi City. And, we ask that you consider supporting opportunities through the Society to provide medical assistance and restore livelihoods to those in need.

Thank you.

 John F. Maisto
