President Rody Duterte hosts the annual Vin d’Honneur for the diplomatic community composed of the ambassadors representing their respective Heads of State/Government at the Rizal Hall of Malacañan Palace on January 11, 2017.
The term Vin d’Honneur is a French phrase that means “wine of honor.” In the Philippines, the practice has become primarily a diplomatic event and features a toast exchanged between the President and the Papal Nuncio, Dean of the Diplomatic Corps, for the prosperity of the nation and well being of the Filipino people.
This New Year’s Vin d’Honneur is the first of two Vin d’Honneur receptions held annually in the country. The second reception will take place on June 12 on the occasion of the Philippine independence.
