The National Space Week will be observed annually from August 8 to August 14 commencing in 2017, the Philippine Space Agency (PhilSA) said on Tuesday.

According to the statement, this event would raise awareness of space issues, advocate for space exploration’s advantages and positive effects on Filipinos’ daily lives, and honor Filipinos’ contributions to the space industry.

At a meeting on December 19, PhilSA suggested the concept to President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr.

The President and I also talked about the “national imperatives in scientific research, national security, and socio-economic development” in relation to space capabilities.

“Socio-economic value and profit can only be attained when action is done on these spaceborne, space-derived, and space-enabled capabilities. This is a significant challenge for PhilSA, but by working together and through this Council, we can meet it by being actively involved, using design thinking, and being flexible, according to PhilSA Director General Joel Marciano Jr.

He added that the Philippine Space Act’s adoption on August 9, 2019, would coincide with the celebration of National Space Week.

Meanwhile, according to PhilSA, Marcos gave them the mandate to make sure that the information provided to other national government agencies is accessible and useable in order to facilitate the “mapping” of the nation’s “bio-assets” and the creation of bio-diverse zones.

According to PhilSA, Marcos was impressed by how the nation’s present space technology and capabilities support the efforts of other government agencies working in the fields of agriculture, national security, and the environment.

According to the report, Marcos commended the high quality and value of the data provided by Philippine satellites and satellite subscribers.
