In 2016, then Philippine Ambassador Maria Lumen Isleta invited several Filipino expats in different sectors/industries to discuss the possibility of creating a business group that will assist in promoting the bilateral relations of both countries through the private sector.
The Filipino Expatriate Community responded by creating the Philippine Business Club Indonesia.
