Since the establishment of diplomatic relations in 1946, Australia and the Philippines have developed a strong and enduring partnership built on mutual respect, understanding and shared values.

Recognising the strength and dynamism of our long-standing bilateral ties and to mark a new chapter in our relations, Australia and the Philippines have elevated our relationship to a Strategic Partnership.

Our Strategic Partnership is established in the spirit of friendship, and founded on shared democratic values and a common vision for the region where strategic agency is freely exercised and sovereignty is upheld. For the benefit of both countries, we are committed to strengthening our ties, deepening cooperation and enhancing capacity, striving for a region that is open, resilient and prosperous. 

In declaring this Strategic Partnership, our Leaders reaffirmed our shared interests in building prosperity and preserving peace in the region.
