June has always been a busy month for the Tsinoy community as organizations come together to commemorate Philippine Independence Day and celebrate Philippines-China relations.
Last June 9 and 10, led by the Federation of Filipino-Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry Inc. and the Federation of Filipino-Chinese Associations of the Philippines, the community again celebrated the 119th Independence Day, the 42nd year of the establishment of diplomatic relations and the 16th Filipino-Chinese Friendship Day.
On June 9, the Henan Shaolin Martial Arts Troupe performed before a jampacked audience of Filipinos, Chinese and Tsinoys at the Cultural Center of the Philippines in celebration of 42nd anniversary of Philippines-China diplomatic ties and the 16th Filipino-Chinese Friendship Day.
The event was organized jointly by the FFCAP, the Department of Foreign Affairs and the Chinese Embassy in Manila.
This year, the celebration was made more meaningful with the opening of the exhibit “600 Years of Enduring Friendship: Beyond borders, beyond time” and the launching of the book The Ties that Bind, the Saga of the Sultan of Sulu in China to commemorate the 600th anniversary of the 1417 visit of the Sultan Sulu to the imperial court of Ming Emperor Yong Le.
The event, hosted by the Kaisa Heritage Foundation and the FFCAP, was held on June 9 at the Bahay Tsinoy Museum in Intramuros, Manila. The exhibit is on view until July 15.
The traditional celebration of the Philippine National Day was held at the Philippine International Convention Center on June 10, hosted by the FFCCCII.
Secretary of Trade and Industry Ramon Lopez represented President Duterte as the keynote speaker for the occasion. He lauded the efforts of the Tsinoy community in helping rebuild the nation.
On June 12, Kaisa Para Sa Kaunlaran and the Lao Na Hometown Association went on their annual wreath laying at the statue of Gen. Jose Ignacio Paua in Silang, Cavite.
Paua, the only pure-blooded Chinese general in the Philippine Revolution, hailed from Lao Na village in Nan-An, Fujian province, China.
