Glory Days of the Manila-Acapulco Galleon Trade

Sen. Edgardo Angara has underscored the importance to resurrect the Galleon Trade for a more dynamic foreign, trade and economic relations between the Philippines and Spain as well as with other Hispanic countries.

Angara, who recently received the 2010 Premio Casa Asia award from a 10-man jury members of the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affair’s cultural branch in Madrid for his exceptional efforts to encourage understanding and strengthen relations between Spain and the Philippines through various programs and projects, said as natural partners, Spain and the Philippines should revive Galleon Trade.

“We should resurrect our long and fruitful ties created during the 16th century. Back then, this association brought trade, investment, agriculture and the enrichment of our culture and language. In modern times, more dynamic trade between Spain and the Philippines would mean a great deal of shared knowledge in a wide range of categories, from historical preservation to research and technology,” he said.

Angara authored Republic Act No. 1987 which proclaimed June 30th as the official Philippine-Spain Friendship Day that further demonstrated his dedication to this cause.

He said foreign relations between the Philippines and Spain has been reawakened since the first celebration of the first Philippine-Spanish Friendship Day in 2003.

“Eight years later, we have achieved huge strides in the area of legislation, culture, education, language, and sports through this interaction,” he said.

Angara, through the help of the Spanish and Mexican embassies, also spearheaded the recent celebration of the Dia del Galeon which commemorated the historic and cultural ties forged during glory days of the Manila-Acapulco Galleon Trade. - pna
