SAN JOSE – Philippine Consul General in San Francisco Neil Frank Ferrer paid a courtesy call on San Jose City Mayor Matt Mahan on April 12.

The two sides held discussions on promoting mutual trade and investment, enhancing people-to-people ties, and engaging with the Filipino American community in the City of San Jose.

Consul General Ferrer shared the Philippines’ investment priorities to Mayor Mahan and expressed hope that companies in San Jose, especially technology-related ones, can consider the Philippines as a site for future expansion, especially in growing its startup ecosystem.

The Consul General also thanked the City of San Jose and Filipino American community groups in the city for the annual flag raising ceremony to celebrate the Filipino American History Month in October in recognition of the contributions of Filipino Americans in the country’s history. He also noted with appreciation the Delano Manongs Park, the first park in San Jose which memorializes the contributions of the Filipino American community in the farmworker labor movement of the 1960s.

San Jose is northern California’s largest city. It is known as a global hub for the high-tech industry of Silicon Valley. There are over 65,000 Filipino Americans residing in San Jose.
