Philippines is part of the Ibero-American Summit as Associate Member. It's nice to see Philippines as part of almost
all continent organization. ASEAN, East Asia Summit, Asia-Pacific, Latin Union and Ibero-American Summit. I guess this is also one of the reason why they want to re-introduce the Spanish Language in the Philippines. East Timor belongs to Southeast Asia but they still considered Portuguese language as one of the official so from all of the members. Notice, Philippines is the only member country that doesn't speak Spanish or considered Spanish as official language. So it's nice that they re-introducing the language again little by little for possible Global market & reuniting to Ibero-American.

Member States
The first summit, held in 1991 in Guadalajara, Mexico, was attended by the governments of Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Portugal, Spain, Uruguay and Venezuela. Andorra joined in 2004.[1][2][3] Equatorial Guinea and the Philippines entered in 2009 as "associate members". Puerto Rico has participated sometimes as an associate member, but as it is not a sovereign country it is not allowed to completely join the summits. Belize and East Timor have expressed their interest in joining the summits, although they have not been allowed to join for the moment. All these countries were either Spanish or Portuguese colonies (Belize and the Philippines were Spanish before belonging to the UK and the US, respectively). Other former Spanish and Portuguese colonies may join the summits in the future.

I'm Filipino so the reason why our country has those above qualities is for the simple reason that we were colonized by Spain for 500 (?) years. But we definitely are not considered Hispanic. In fact our independence day was rooted from Declaration of Independence from Spain on 12 June 1898.

Which was in Spanish.

Hispanic countries in the Americas also had their declarations of independence from Spain.


The very fact that Filipinås call themselves Filipinås, attributed to King Philip II of Spain, and that the Philippine identity in itself wouldn't have come into existence if it wasn't for the Spanish makes it in a way Hispanic.

Each is entitled to their own opinion though, and I respect yours.

I guess the actual Philippine Independence should be July 4, 1946. Because after 12 June 1898 we were colonized by another country, the United States until they gave our full Independence on July 4, 1946. 1 yr after the Japanese invasion (1942-1945).

^ Tagalog is a language. There are dialects of Tagalog, like Manileño, Batangas Tagalog, Marinduqueño, etc.

Just like Cebuano, Ilocano, Bicolano etc are distinct languages that have their own dialects

Many native Filipino women were impregnated by Spaniards hundreds of years ago which resulted to the mestisos they have now. Philippines is a very diverse country. I can't brand all of them as Hispanics as some of them have Chinese and Indian heritages.
