60 Years and Bon Vivant! Philippine-French Relations grew out of a symposium held at the Ateneo de Manila University on June 26, 2007 to mark the 60th Anniversary of the said establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries. The symposium covered four themes: France in Philippine history, France in Philippine culture, France in Philippine education, and Filipino families with French ancestry. The themes have hence been expanded to include business, and a folio of Filipino artists who lived, visited, or were touched by France.
