Philippines hosting 2019 SEAG in Clark, Zambales, Bulacan

KUALA LUMPUR — The Philippines intends to hold the 30th SEA Games in Clark, Pampanga and the neighboring provinces of Bulacan and Zambales while showcasing to our Southeast Asian neighbors “the new Philippines.”

Foreign Affairs Sec. Alan Peter Cayetano, designated as the 2019 SEA Games Organizing Committee chairman, bared this in an interview with the Filipino sportswriters in the sidelines of the semifinals matches of SEAG volleyball competition at the Malaysian International Trade and Exhibition Center here yesterday.

Cayetano is here to cheer the Filipino athletes and have an initial talk with Philippine Olympic Committee president Jose “Peping” Cojuangco Jr. with regards the country’s hosting of the next SEA Games.

The first order is to set up the structure of the organizing group for the country’s fourth hosting of the biennial meet since 1981.

Cayetano is excited.

“It’s a great, great opportunity to do three things. Number one is to feature the new Philippines. Number two, to show Philippine hospitality. And number three, to focus on training and grassroots sports program in the Philippines,” said Cayetano.
