Global relationships

By Klyde

Australia is an amazing country in which I live in. It is full of so many amazing plants and fascinating wildlife! However, if you look past that there's something even more remarkable than that. The people, so many different religions, hopes and beliefs. Opportunities for everyone! I am proud of this country. It is absolutely amazing, but wait! How did Australia's population become so diverse? Well, for this one you'll need to go out of Australia and this brings us to the topic of global relationships. There is many different countries Australia and Australians have relationships with, however I have been focusing on only one. Welcome to my research about Australia's relationship with The Philippines.


Australia and the Philippines have been through 70 years of country relations which will show the 2 countries close but broad relationship.Now, in 2016, relationships have increased through development towards stable growth,trade,defence and law enforcement.The bordering countries are China, Indonesia, Japan, Palau, Vietnam and Taiwan.

Canberra,Australia's capital is located at the coordinates 35°17' S and 149°07'41'' E (latitude and longitude.).It takes 8 hours and 16 minutes to get from one country to another by plane.


A straight forward trade route is unclearand a bit of a mystery, but there is a chance that the products get exported from Cairns to Hong Kong which will then send it to the Philippines.Any Australian businesses looking to carry out business will have to put excellent behaviour and courtesy into consideration. Australia exports: iron ore which is valued at $66,008 ,coal which is valued at $37,999 ,natural gas which is valued at $17,743 ,gold worth $14,277, $13,460 worth of crude petroleum, $10,564 worth of beef, aluminium, ore and concentrates valued $7,751 and wheat valued $6,336, This is all together valued at $326,862.Filipino exports are: machines,paper,electronic equipment,iron and steel, gems and precious and coins,ores and ash,fruits and nuts,medical and tech equipment and perfumes.

The only sport Australia and the Philippines have in common is soccer but in the Philippines it is called football.Australia's national team is the Socceroos ©™and the Philippine's national team is called the Azkals. Australia's best player is called Tim Cahill while the Philippine's best player is Phil Younghusband. The two teams have played against each other in the 2015 FIFA world cup ®. The two teams will go to the 2018 FIFA world cup in Russia.

History of the teams

the Azkals

When the Philippines figured out that basketball wasn't their sport, they switched to soccer (football) and found out that they were more suited to this sport.This has been made clear by the triumphs of the Azkals. The Azkals wins have increased in number dramatically over the years.

The Socceroos

The socceroos was made in 1922.

Australia has a rich sporting history, winners of many world sporting championships, though its participation at a major world sporting event - the FIFA World Cup of Football - has been limited. They have reached the World Cup Finals four times, in Germany 1974 and 2006, South Africa in 2010, and Brazil in 2014.

Between 1930 and 1962, Australia did not enter the World Cup. In 1966 and 1970 they again did not qualify. In 1974 they made it only to be defeated in the first round. From 1978 to 2002 they again failed to qualify, until 2006 where they again joined the best Soccer teams of the world.

International aid

Typhoon Haiyan

In November the eighth 2013, the Philippines and a part of Southeast Asia got struck by a category 5 typhoon named Haiyan ( it was called super typhoon yolanda in the Philippines) . It caused devastating damage but as soon as the typhoon stopped, the hardworking Filipinos went to work. They were helped by the government and non-government organisations. Every body in the world helped the Philippines through international organisations like Red Cross, Caritas etc. Julie Bishop, the Prime minister at the time, announced that Australia would give over $10 million dollars worth of aid. This consists of $1 million dollars worth of medical assistance, $3 million dollars that was given to non-government organisations.
