The 48th International Bazaar: Shop Global, Help Local

The 48th International Bazaar is a much awaited annual event, as goods provided by the Diplomatic and Consular Corps and local concessionaires are sold.

This bazaar is being organized by the Department of Foreign Affairs to help change the lives of the marginalized sectors of society by generating charitable capital and providing services that contribute to the health and well-being of the communities we serve.


The International Bazaar, was initiated in 1966 by Mrs. Angela Valdes-Ramos, wife of then Secretary of Foreign Affairs Narciso Ramos. On 26 April 1995, after twenty-nine years, the International Bazaar was duly registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission as the International Bazaar Foundation, Incorporated (IBF).

With the spouse of the Secretary of Foreign Affairs as the chair, the first bazaar was held as a special project of the ladies of the Department of Foreign Affairs, the Diplomatic and Consular Corps, the Armed Forces of the Philippines, other government agencies and the private sector. Since then, the event has become an annual undertaking of the Ladies of the Department of Foreign Affairs in cooperation with the Diplomatic and Consular Corps, sharing one mission of alleviating suffering and misery by improving the lives of the underprivileged and less fortunate.
