Australia’s Development Program in the Philippines

Australia and the Philippines have a longstanding development partnership spanning more than 50 years. It is one of our largest, with total Australian assistance to the Philippines estimated at PHP 3.3 billion (AUD 89.9 million) in 2023-2024.

The Philippines and Australia remain committed development partners, building mutually beneficial economic ties and reinforcing our cooperation for a more resilient, stable, and prosperous region. As Strategic Partners, we will strengthen our longstanding development partnership by investing in inclusive programs that are responsive to the priority development needs of the Philippines.

We will further intensify our efforts to build a better future for our two countries and the broader region through cooperation informed by the Philippine Development Plan 2023–28 and Australia’s new International Development Policy.
