Embassy of the Republic of the Philippines

Pasuguan ng Republika ng Pilipinas



On behalf of the Philippine Embassy to New Zealand, I wish to invite the Filipino
Community and our Kiwi Friends in Aoteroa to attend and join the Pistang Pilipino 2018 –
Sama Sama sa Rotorua ! It will be held in Rotorua 20-21 October 2018. This, in keeping
with tradition, is the largest gathering of Filipinos in this great country. It will be a fun-filled
weekend of sports, pageantry, food, music and culture. The Embassy will also hold a
Consular Services / Passporting Mobile Service at the same time in Rotorua.

Starting this year in Rotorua, the Embassy would like to invite participants to take
advantage of the Pistang Pilipino to formulate action plans to galvanize the now 60,000
strong Filipino - Kiwi Community to become truly a force to reckon with in New Zealand
society – in terms of politics, business, arts, culture, entertainment, et al. Let us also find
ways to further support our youth and new migrants, and to truly empower them. I look
forward to this dialogue with you.

We wish to thank the Filipino Community in Rotorua, the BOP Philippine Friendship
Society Inc., and the Federation of Filipino Associations, Clubs and Societies in New Zealand,
Inc. (FFACNSNZI) for their dedication and hard work in making the Pistang Pilipino 2018 –
Sama Sama sa Rotorua a reality.

Maraming Salamat Po ! Mabuhay !
