ABOUT 10,530 kilometers of land and ocean separate the Philippines from Switzerland. But in an instant, Filipinos can easily answer what comes to mind when they hear “Swiss”—the Swiss knife, chocolate, cheese, watch, and the Swiss Alps.

The Swiss Consulate in the Philippines was the very first consulate in Asia and have maintained consular offices here until today.
