Diplomatic relations between the Philippines and Denmark were established on 28 September 1946. In the past, the Philippine Embassy in the United Kingdom was responsible for the Philippines’ relations with Denmark. In 1979, this responsibility was transferred to the Philippine Embassy in Stockholm, Sweden, which, at that time, also handled the Philippines’ diplomatic links with the other Nordic countries (Norway and Finland). When the Philippine Embassy in Oslo, Norway was established in 30 April 2007, jurisdiction over Denmark was transferred to the latter.
Denmark, on the other hand, maintains an Embassy in Malaysia whose envoy exercises concurrent jurisdiction over the Philippines. Despite differences in political and social structures, both countries have found common causes in both regional and international affairs.
