Today marks the occasion of the restoration of sovereignty of our country from the American Government dating back to 1946. The Treaty of Manila was signed by both parties which granted the Philippines its independence from the United States. U.S. President Harry S. Truman also signed Proclamation No. 2695 which formally recognized the United States’ withdrawal of sovereignty over the Philippines in accordance with the Philippine Independence Act. This day is also recognized as the Republic Day and Philippine-American Friendship Day in commemoration of the restoration of the Philippine Republic. July 4 also coincides with the United States’ independence from Great Britain in 1776.
