On the 213th Anniversary of Mexico’s Proclamation of Independence, Mexican Ambassador to the Philippines His Excellency Daniel Hernández Joseph, cherished the deep connections between the Philippines and Mexico as both countries celebrate the 70th Diplomatic Relations.

The well-attended National Day Celebration showcases the unique, vibrant and colorful traditions of Mexico that guests witnessed on September 15, 2023, at the Grand Hyatt Ballroom in BGC, Taguig City.

During his welcome address, Ambassador Joseph expressed gratitude to the diplomatic corps, government officials, business community, media, Mexicans doing business in the Philippines, and those who attended and supported the festive Mexico’s national day celebration.

He also mentioned that the national day celebration is a very special occasion not only because it is the 70th bilateral relations between Mexico and Philippines, but also the 458th anniversary of the official beginning of trade between Manila and Acapulco.

“This means that 458 years of brotherhood (between the Philippines and Mexico). That includes centuries of sharing history and this is most evident in 1810, when Ramón Fabié joined the fight for independence in Mexico and gave his life,” Joseph said.

“So we are walking in the same historical path and this has led us to the cultural traits and values and this includes the concern for the protection of our planet. The preservation of the only place we have to live. Our commitment to peace and a peaceful resolution of controversies. Our belief in the rules-based world order. Our belief in democracy and equality are ideal forms of social organizations. So our shared values and our shared views of the world allow us to walk hand in hand while we face these current challenges in this ever-changing world. And this is also evident in how we often agree and support each other in multilateral fora,” Ambassador Joseph concluded.
