The Philippine Embassy in Brasilia reported that Ambassador Eva G. Betita and the Ambassadors of Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, and Thailand, together with their officers and staff, hosted a whole-day cultural exposition and bazaar in celebration of the 44th Anniversary of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).

Held on September 10 at the premises of the Malaysian Embassy, the event was well-attended by the Brazilian community as well as the diplomatic corps in Brasilia.

The participating ASEAN countries each displayed their arts, crafts and tourism and trade/investment promotion materials in exhibition booths, and presented their national costumes, music, dances and skills in the cultural program showcasing regional cultural commonality and diversity in the day-long festivity.


A bazaar that featured culinary delicacies and products provided the public the opportunity to sample the food and products of the ASEAN countries.


The Embassy used the occasion to campaign and promote the Puerto Princesa Underground River (PPUR) as the Philippines’ entry to the ongoing international search for the New Seven Wonders of Nature.

Pictures of the PPUR were prominently displayed, and Philippine products were awarded as prizes to those who correctly answered relevant questions about the underground river and other aspects of the rich Philippine cultural heritage.
