05:08 AM July 30, 2023

President Marcos has declared Aug. 8 to Aug. 14 of every year as Philippine Space Week to promote space awareness among Filipinos and highlight the use of space technology for the country’s economic growth. Under Proclamation No. 302 issued on July 25, the President said the declaration of the Philippine Space Week coincided with the enactment of the Philippine Space Act on Aug. 8, 2019. Mr. Marcos said the declaration would “highlight the substantial influence of space science and technology applications on the socio-economic development of the country.” He ordered the Philippine Space Agency (PhilSA) to promote the observance of the Philippine Space Week and identify the programs, projects and activities for its annual observance. The PhilSA is an agency under the Office of the President. —Nestor Corrales
