President Ferdinand 'Bongbong' Marcos Jr. will be flying to Germany and the Czech Republic next week for state visits following the invitation of their respective leaders.

In a Palace statement, the back-to-back visits will be happenning from March 11-15, 2024.

The President together with First Lady Louise Araneta-Marcos will meet with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz in Berlin for a working visit.

Meanwhile, in the Czech Republic, Marcos will meet with the four (4) heads of the Czech government-President Petr Pavel and Prime Minister Petr Fiala, and the heads of the Czech Parliament-Senate President Miloš Vystrčil and President of the Chamber of Deputies Markéta Pekarová Adamová.


The President’s trip to the two Central European nations follows the visits to Manila of Czech Prime Minister Petr Fiala in April 2023 and German Federal Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock in January 2024.

This endeavor seeks to strengthen bilateral relations and foster increased cooperation with the two nations.

During the President’s time in Germany and the Czech Republic, Marcos will also meet with prominent business leaders to bolster trade and investment opportunities.

He will also have the opportunity to meet with the Filipino communities living in Germany and the Czech Republic to personally share his administration’s plans and programs for the OFWs and reaffirm the Philippine government’s commitment to supporting Filipinos worldwide.


The visits comes at a significant juncture as the Philippines just celebrated the 50th anniversary of bilateral relations with the Czech Republic last year and will commemorate the 70th anniversary of diplomatic relations with Germany this year.

Marcos recently returned from Australia for the ASEAN Special Summit.

This also marks the President's fourth trip this year.
