Malacañang has issued Memorandum Circular 84, signed on behalf of Philippines' President, Benigno Aquino III, by Executive Secretary Paquito Ochoa Jr, which extends the previously-announced November one-off public holidays declared in the Manila National Capital Region (NCR), on account of the 2015 Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Economic Leaders' Meeting.
Last summer (15-Jul-2015), Philippines' President, Benigno Aquino III, had issued "Proclamation No. 1072 (s. 2015)" which declared 2 additional one-off non-working public holidays, on Wednesday and Thursday, November 18 and 19, 2015, in the Philippines on account of the upcoming APEC 2015 summit, thus amending the previously released (23-Jul-2014) list of official 2015 non-working public holidays in the Philippines (Proclamation No. 831, s. 2014).
Note, however, that today's "Memorandum Circular No. 84, s. 2015", issued upon the recommendation of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation – Office of the Director General (APEC- ODG), Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), and the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), only declares Tuesday, and Friday, November 17 and 20, 2015, as non-working public holidays for the civil service ("government offices, including Government-Owned or – Controlled Corporations") and within Metro Manilla region ("in the National Capital Region").
