Gov't backs Philippine bid to host Asian senior's volleyball tiff

MANILA, Philippines — The national government is leaving no stone unturned in making sure that the country’s hosting of the 19th AVC Asian Senior Women’s Championship set from Augusr 9 to 17 in Binan City and Muntinlupa City will be a massive success.

Malacanang, through lawyer Concepcion Ferrolino-Edad, recently tasked all government agencies, including government owned and controlled corporations, to provide support to the country’s hosting of the prestigious tournament, which stakes ranking points in the FIVB.

With the pronouncement, all government agencies will be mobilized, especially vital offices like the Philippine Sports Commission, Bureau of Immigration, Bureau of Customs, Philippine National Police, Metro Manila Development Authority and Department of Tourism, to make sure that the country’s hosting will be trouble-free.

This is the second time that the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte showed its concern to Philippine volleyball.

Last year, Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea declared the month of October as “Volleyball Month” that paved the way for the successful hosting of the FIVB Women’s Club World Championship.

Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas, Inc. (LVPI) acting president Peter Cayco lauded this pronouncement by Malacanang, saying that government support is a major boost to the country’s hosting of the biggest, most prestigious volleyball tournament in Asia.
