Long weekend ahead! Palace declares non-working holidays for ASEAN summit
Filipinos in Metro Manila will get to enjoy another long weekend next week after Malacañang declared working holidays for activities related to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit.
Under Memorandum Circular No. 18 issued Friday (April 21), work in government offices in Pasay, Manila and Makati is suspended on April 27.
There will be no work and classes in both private and public institutions on April 28, except for government agencies involved in the delivery of basic services and those which have responsibilities related to the ASEAN Summit.
The memorandum circular was signed by Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea.
The ASEAN summit will take place within the Cultural Center of the Philippines Complex in Pasay City.
Ahead of the ASEAN Summit, the Metro Manila Development Authority told motorists to expect occasional traffic disruption along Pasay Road and Makati Avenue.
It said a rerouting scheme will be implemented along Sen. W. Diokno Blvd., Jalandoni St., V. Sotto St., Bukaneg St., and A. Dela Rama St.
The MMDA said motorists should take alternative routes.
