The Mayor of Marbella, Ángeles Muñoz, discussed cooperation initiatives with the Ambassador of the Philippines in Spain, Carlos Salinas, as part of an official reception that took place at the Town Council.

The Mayor underlined that the Philippine community in Marbella “is very important and is very integrated” and that it currently stands at around 1.500 citizens. To this effect, she emphasized the importance of carrying out “mutual collaboration” campaigns on town census registration or to ensure “greater awareness of the municipal environment.”

Likewise, she offered the Ambassador “full municipal support and collaboration” and noted the progress achieved with the forthcoming opening of a consulate in Malaga and a consular office in Marbella, where the Philippine community will be able to attend to their documentation requirements without needing to travel any further afield.

For his part, Salinas underscored “the deep bonds that unite Spain and the Philippines” and explained that “we want to launch initiatives in Marbella for greater cooperation between Marbella and the Philippines”.
