DOST-ASEAN Foundation MoA Signing

Thursday, May 29, 2008

28 May 2008 was the Signing Ceremony for the Memorandum of Agreement between the Department of Science of Technology and the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) Foundation held at Shangri-la Makati Hotel, our office became the secretariat for that event and I was obviously assigned to handle the technical stuff needed for the event (i.e. laptops, projectors, presentations, camera's and other equipments needed for the event). I also served as the photographer for our office, and I have been part of a number of events before but I can say this was one of those events that went pretty smoothly despite the meager time alloted for the preparation of the event, I was told about the signing two days before the event.

This was a rather small but very significant event, because this event assured the financial assistance of the ASEAN foundation to the 8th ASEAN Science and Technology Week (ASTW) to be held here in the Philippines this July 1 to 11 . the 8th ASTW is a very big event for the Science Community in the Philippines and within the ASEAN region.

BTW our office will also be handling the 8th ASTW so this event was a big help to us, for more info about the 8th ASTW, you can visit the URL
