TAGBILARAN CITY – As the country plays host to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit in Manila, Bohol governor Edgar Chatto is not letting the international event pass “without the impact that we need.”
Chatto has required government agencies and private groups and institutions based in Bohol to sing the ASEAN Hymn during the last two months of 2017.
Boholanos will now have to sing three songs before any official event can commence in Bohol.
“We will sing the ASEAN Hymn for the months of November and December after we sing the National Anthem and the Bohol Hymn,” Chatto said in a directive he issued recently.
Chatto said the move was inspired for two reasons: The Philippines is the host country for the ASEAN’s 50th founding anniversary and Bohol has also been the venue to five ASEAN ministerial meetings for the last six months.
He said he was also impressed with their local Department of Education office which made it a policy for schoolchildren to sing the ASEAN Hymn.
The governor has asked the Department of Education and town mayors to help snowball the singing of the ASEAN hymn in the province. (Minerva BC Newman)
