A massive celebration for the Filipino community in the UAE will be held at the Dubai World Trade Centre on June 9 to mark the 126th anniversary of the Philippines' independence.

The celebration, which will be attended by UAE officials and prominent diplomatic, economic, and social figures from the Filipino community, aims to honour the strong ties between the UAE and the Philippines and to enhance cooperation between the two countries.

The event will celebrate Filipino culture as well as the contributions of the Filipino community to the UAE's sustainable development journey.

Held in collaboration with Dubai Police, the celebration will include diverse cultural and artistic activities, including musical performances, folk dances, and exhibitions of Filipino crafts and arts. The event will also feature entertainment for children.

Running from 8am to 8pm, the celebration will offer various entertainment activities and competitions, as well as a series of artistic performances showcasing different aspects of Filipino culture.

The celebration, organised by The "Emirates Loves the Philippines" social media page, underscores the UAE's success in creating a tolerant and open environment that allows everyone to live in peace and harmony.

The UAE and the Philippines maintained strong ties even before establishing official diplomatic relations on August 19, 1974, followed by the opening of the Philippine Embassy in Abu Dhabi on June 17, 1980.

The bilateral relationship reached a milestone with the opening of the UAE Embassy in Manila in 1989, and since then, the cooperation between the two countries has expanded significantly, peaking in recent years.

The UAE greatly values the substantial contributions of thousands of Filipino workers to its economic growth, not only in the tourism and trade sectors but also in other fields such as engineering, healthcare, and human resources.
