Session 3. Russia and the Philippines: is strategic cooperation possible?
5 September 2017

The Philippines is one of the largest Southeast Asian nations with a population exceeding 100 million people. Annual economic growth of 6% makes the Philippines one of the world’s most rapidly developing countries. Throughout the past decade, Russo-Filipino contacts have been limited. There was a notable shift in 2016, however, when President Rodrigo Duterte came into office and proclaimed his intention to pursue a more balanced foreign policy. Whereas previously the Philippines’ relations with the great powers had been mostly focused on the US, now the country also sees Russia and China as potentially important partners. President Duterte has repeatedly stated that the Philippines is interested in strengthening and developing relations with Russia as new strategic partner for the country. In December 2016, when a group of Russian Pacific Fleet ships visited Manila, he personally toured one of them. In spring 2017, President Duterte visited Moscow to meet President Vladimir Putin. At the governmental level, Russia and the Philippines are working on plans to boost cooperation and exchanges in all key areas, including the economy, military cooperation, security, education, and science. As a result, relations with the Philippines have become a very promising element of Russia’s policy in the Asia-Pacific region. This session will discuss the current state of Russo-Filipino relations and prospects for the future. Is it possible to establish strategic cooperation between our countries?
