The Vin d’Honneur, an age-old French tradition, took place on the Jan. 11, 2024 at the Ceremonial Hall of Malacañang Palace, adorned with Sampaguita flowers and Bahay Kubo design elements; for the convergence of diplomatic minds, to showcase the rich cultural diversity that binds the Philippines with countries from all over the world. It served as a symbol of unity and collaboration among nations. Unity, the battle cry of the President’s historic campaign run, was on display tonight with global constituents.

His Excellency, President Marcos exuded the world-renowned Filipino hospitality with a charismatic, yet disarmingly warm welcome to esteemed ambassadors and diplomatic envoys, harboring an atmosphere of camaraderie and mutual understanding. The unique gathering brought about meaningful exchanges; to set aside differences, and to forge stronger alliances – with a united aspiration – for global peace, stability, and prosperity for all. The lovely night was highlighted by a gastronomic Filipino feast by Margarita Forés and topped off with a cultural performance by theater artists, El Gamma Penumbra. In essence, our international brethren caught a glimpse of what Bagong Pilipinasis truly about – a friend to all, and an enemy to none.
