MANILA, Philippines — Last July 3, Italy’s Undersecretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Manlio di Stefano, visited the Philippines to further strengthen the relationship between Italy and the Philippines. The two countries have enjoyed a warm and cordial relationship since 1947 after the signing of the Treaty of Friendship and General Relations in Rome. Since then, the Philippines and Italy have concluded several agreements, including those pertaining to scientific and technical cooperation, investments, small and medium enterprises, and various transportation and communication initiatives.

The visit by Undersecretary Di Stefano marks the 72nd year of diplomatic relations and showed the speed at which the Philippines’ economy has risen due to and aided by the extent of trade between the two countries.

The visit was also a night of celebration as the Italian government awarded Prudential Guarantee & Assurance chairman and CEO Robert Coyiuto Jr. the Ufficiale dell’Ordine della Stella d’ Italia (Order of the Star of Italy). The Official Order of the Star of Italy is the equivalent of a knighthood and one of the highest recognitions conferred by the President of the Republic of Italy. The distinction recognizes the service of foreigners who have promoted national prestige and boosted the ties between Italy and the Philippines.
