For Hungarian Ambassador Dr. Titanilla Tóth, the Philippines’ bond with Western countries, especially Hungary, is a great advantage that should be strengthened.

On September 28, 1973, diplomatic ties between the Philippines and Hungary were officially established. Nearly two decades later, the two countries inaugurated embassies in Manila and Budapest. But in 1995, the Hungarian Embassy’s activities in the Philippines were suspended. The reopening of their embassy in Manila in 2016 was a major milestone for both countries and saw the signing of an important agreement on economic cooperation. This led to the founding of a Joint Committee on Economic Cooperation.


Beyond history and papers, however, Hungary has been true to their word and has helped our country in certain areas of cooperation—education, agriculture, science and technology (S&T), innovation, culture, and sports.
