More than 200 Filipino Community leaders and officers, representing 52 Philippine-German associations in Germany, attended the First Convention of Filipino Community Leaders which was held on 4 June 2005 at the Rheinterasse, Düsseldorf.
It was a pioneering event that was held as part of the commemorative activities for the 50th anniversary of Philippine-German relations.
The Convention adopted a Joint Declaration of Filipino Community Leaders that will serve as the primary framework of unity and cooperation among Filipino-German Associations under an umbrella organization. In particular, they have recommended to consider the establishment of a National Council of Filipino German Associations that will embody the ideals, aspirations and concerns of Filipinos and Filipino-German in Germany.
