Philippine Embassy in Germany Chargé d’affaires Lillibeth V. Pono, in her welcome remarks, expressed that the evening’s experience of the Philippines – through the “senses” (hearing stories/seeing images of the Philippines and tasting Philippine-inspired drinks) – should be able to convince and inspire everyone to visit and spread the word about the country.

A total of three exclusive events will take place in November in Hamburg, Munich, and Düsseldorf under the name “Philippine Fruit Festival”.
