BERLIN PE INDEPENDENCE DAY RECEPTION FOLLOWS THE FOOTSTEPS OF DR. JOSE RIZAL AS THE PHILIPPINES MOVES TOWARD A BROAD AND PERMANENT CHANGE

Berlin, 10 June 2014. The Philippines recently celebrated the 116th Anniversary of the Proclamation of Philippine Independence through an evening of “Dinner and Dance” at the Hotel Maritim Berlin.  The Embassy focused this year’s celebrations on the Filipino heroes that inspired and fought for the formation of a strong and independent republic, foremost among them Dr. Jose Rizal. 

In her evocative remarks, Ambassador Maria Cleofe R. Natividad, recounted the exploits of Dr. Jose Rizal in Heidelberg and Berlin, where he trained in ophthalmology and completed Noli Mi Tangere. While in Berlin, Rizal devoted much attention to German scholarship on Filipino ethnography, which he found to be scientific, objective and non-racist.  Ambassador Natividad remarked that “if ‘nation’ were an ‘imagined community’, Rizal was the first to imagine the Philippines as a national community. This is why, a scholar-diplomat, Leon Maria Guerrero, at one point also the first Philippine Ambassador to Germany, called Rizal as the First Filipino… Berlin is where it began for Rizal. Rizal’s aspirations for equal opportunity, better education, inclusiveness, and good governance continue to resonate today, more than a hundred years later.”

Berlin – The Philippine Embassy in Berlin reported to the Department of Foreign Affairs in Manila that it has registered close to one hundred new voters since the announcement of the start of the overseas voting registration on May 6, 2014.

Filipinos young and old have taken upon themselves to register at the Philippine Embassy in Berlin, and some of them have taken time to share their thoughts on being a registered overseas voter.


Accompanying his five children, Rev. Fr. Dennis G. Santiago of the Church of the Holy Trinity, Charismatic Episcopal Church in Berlin, felt proud knowing that his children abroad can now exercise their fundamental right to vote.  As a parent, Mr. Santiago said it is his “duty to instill in my children awareness not only of our culture but also of the socio- economic and political situation of our country.  Since several (of my children) chose to remain Filipinos, I might as well encourage them to take part in finding a solution to the many problems besetting our nation and I think exercising their right of suffrage is a good start.”

Statement of Presidential Spokesperson Edwin Lacierda:On the launch of FAiTH Version 2.0
Written by Philippine Embassy Webmaster   
Friday, 16 May 2014
Today, we launch Version 2.0 of the Foreign Aid Transparency Hub (FAiTH)—with enhancements that allow it to deliver more fully on its promise of transparency and accountability for aid and assistance given to the Philippines in the aftermath of Typhoon Yolanda. The improvements that distinguish FAiTH 2.0 from its initial launch lie primarily in the fact that 64 countries and 7 multilateral organizations now have access to FAiTH’s content management system.

With each embassy or organization now possessing a unique account username and password, they now have the ability to input or update their country or organization’s cash and non-cash pledges. Necessary measures are in place to ensure accuracy and ease of verification. As embassies update their data, each successful entry will generate a unique transaction ID and an electronic alert sent to the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA). Each update must also be officially communicated to the DFA via Note Verbale. A number of these embassies and organizations have already updated their data; thus, the figures on this version of FAiTH are also the most updated figures on aid and assistance.
