ASEAN's 50th Birthday in PH

Hosted by the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) and in collaboration with the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), the Philippines celebrates ASEAN’s 50 years with the theme “Under One Light, we are One ASEAN”. This is all happening on August 8, 2017, Tuesday.

This is considered a big event in Philippine history, seeing as how ASEAN has managed to better shape and boost the economy -- be it in globalization or educating entrepreneurs in the country. The celebration would be simultaneously held in the capitals of other ASEAN Member States, including 63 cities in the Philippines.

The program will start at the Luneta Park by 3:00 PM, then to the CCP grounds for the ASEAN Landmark Lighting. After this, there would be a concert at BGC where 10 ASEAN pop artists will perform. Notable Filipino acts include Up Dharma Down, Franco, Itchy Worms, and the cast of Rak of Aegis.

Here’s a more detailed version of their program:
