Malacañang has issued a communique ruling out for now the declaration of October 31 as a non-working public holiday in the Philippines capital, Manila, on account of the upcoming ASEAN Summit (“On ASEAN holiday. No official issuance yet. Will post once provided.").

The aforementioned declaration of a one-off non-working public holiday in the Philippines capital, Manila, on account of the upcoming ASEAN Summit, would thus amend the list of official public holidays in the Philippines, released last summer (2016-08-18), when Rodrigo Duterte signed Proclamation No. 50, s. 2016.

Earlier this year (2017-04-21), Malacañang had issued Memorandum Circular 18 which declared 2 one-off non-working public holidays in the Manila National Capital Region (NCR), on Thursday and Friday, April 27 and 28, 2017, on account of the upcoming 2017 ASEAN Summit.

Previous ASEAN and APEC summits in the Philippines were also declared as one-off non-working public holidays in the Philippines in the past (2015-10-05, 2015-07-15, 2007-01-05, 2006-12-24, 2006-12-12, 2006-11-26, 2006-11-25, and 2006-11-19).
