Phl supports HCCH

Foreign Affairs Secretary Enrique Manalo on Tuesday reiterated the country’s commitment to The Hague Conference on Private International Law.

“The Philippines remains committed to supporting HCCH conventions that are aligned with our foreign policy and which are beneficial to our people,” Manalo said in his opening speech in the HCCH Asia Pacific Week at the Makati Diamond Residences in Makati City.

“I take pride in sharing with you that the Philippines is a Party to five HCCH instruments, the most recent is the Child Support Convention which entered into force for the Philippines on 1 October this year,” he added.

To date, he said the Philippines is the only country in Asia that has ratified the Convention.
