Quezon City Mayor Herbert M. Bautista on Monday led the opening of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) information kiosk and landmarks exhibit at the lobby of the Quezon City Hall.

The exhibit, organized by the Philippine Information Agency (PIA), is part of the Golden Anniversary celebration of the ASEAN.

ASEAN, formed in 1967, is a regional intergovernmental organization comprising 10 Southeast Asian states. ASEAN has been establishing itself as a platform for integration and cooperation. The Philippines is a founding member of ASEAN.

During the opening ceremonies, Mayor Bautista said, “Ito pong pagpapasinaya ay dahil tayo ang host-country ng ASEAN ngayong ika-50 anibersaryo ng pagkakatatag nito.”

Aside from the launching of the ASEAN info kiosk and landmarks exhibit, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) also rolled out a Diskwento Caravan, while the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) set up a booth that offers free massage and cooking demonstration.

The ASEAN landmarks exhibit showcases the top tourist destinations of ASEAN-member countries. The ASEAN Info Kiosk makes Information, Education, and Communication (IEC) materials available to the public.#
