The Civil Service Commission (CSC) encourages government agencies, including the Mines and Geosciences Bureau to help extend awareness of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) 2017 Summit through information campaigns, activities, and programs, in preparation for the Chairmanship of the Philippines of ASEAN 2017.

The following are included in the list of activities listed by CSC:

  1. Posting of enclosed materials on ASEAN in respective agency websites
  2. Display of community banners
  3. Singing of the ASEAN anthem in the 1st Monday Flag Ceremony of the month, and an ASEAN flag should be placed on a flag pole on the right hand side of the Philippine Flag.
  4. Sharing of information about ASEAN (ASEAN updates, trivia, activities)

In support of the ASEAN 2017 Summit and the Civil Service Commission, MGB IV CALABARZON held its monthly 1st Monday Convocation last April 3, 2017, wherein the ASEAN Hymn was included in the flag ceremony. Also, Ms. Tess Datu, Administrative Officer V, discussed the guidelines for the ASEAN campaign, and MGB employees wore their ASEAN inspired attire.

In addition, the CSC also encourages both public and private agencies, nationwide to support the campaign, to raise awareness among its members.
