With the in-depth promotion of the "Belt and Road" initiative, the cooperation between China and the Philippines in the field of higher vocational education has shown important opportunities and challenges. At the same time, this cooperation also builds a bridge between the two countries to build a community of educational cooperation. Based on the perspective of "One Belt, One Road", we adopt a combination of theoretical and empirical research to deeply analyse the opportunities and challenges of higher vocational education cooperation between China and the Philippines, as well as the path to build a community. The opportunities for cooperation between higher vocational education in China and the Philippines mainly stem from the complementary advantages of the resources of both sides. Challenges in cooperation are mainly reflected in cultural differences, policy and system mismatches, etc. The construction of a cooperation community needs to focus on the balance of interests between the two sides, cultural integration, system docking and other aspects of efforts, which is of profound significance to deepen the cooperation community of higher vocational education between China and the Philippines and to promote the integrated development of regional education.
