To instill global confidence in the Philippine foreign service.
In its contribution to the drafting of the National Security Policy, the DFA envisions that by 2022, the Philippines will be “confident of its place in the community of nations” as a reliable strategic partner.
To help instill confidence in the Philippine foreign service, the FSI develops and strengthens the competencies of the Philippine foreign service through (1) responsive learning and development programs and (2) relevant, insightful, and timely research activities.
By helping develop their competencies and strengthening policy choices, FSI empowers the Philippine foreign service to gain the trust and confidence of the global community.
By 2026, FSI will be a leading institution in Asia for
diplomatic training and foreign policy research.
The Institute will celebrate its 50th founding anniversary in 2026. FSI envisions an Institute highly regarded by other institutes in Asia as a benchmark for the conduct of diplomatic training and as a research arm that ranks among the top-performing think tanks in the region.
We commit to love and manifest loyalty to the Philippines, its ideals, and its aspirations, to advance our national interests, and to serve the Filipino people through our training programs, research outputs, publications, and library services.
We commit to practise moral uprightness and uphold the principles of honesty, transparency, and dignity.
We commit to embody a consistent practice of skillfulness, competence, and confidence. We will perform our duties with utmost devotion, regardless of our personal and professional differences, and uphold the quality of our work, which reflects on the Institute and its reputation.
We commit to provide an outstanding quality of service with the philosophy of magis (Latin word for more or greater). We will go the extra mile and consider ways to produce results that add value to our service.
We commit to contribute competence (“galing”) and concern (“malasakit”) for the Institute and its stakeholders, including people with special needs, as we perform our duties. We will invest in competence-building through continued professional development.
