President Rodrigo Roa Duterte spearheads the ceremonial send-off for the All-Filipino Maritime Research Expedition Team to the Philippine Rise aboard the BRP Davao del Sur in Casiguran, Aurora on May 15, 2018.
During the program, President Duterte leads the signing of the Presidential Proclamation that pronounces the parts of the Philippine Rise and the Eastern Kalayaan as Marine Protected Areas. He is also visiting various exhibits displayed at the ship’s hangar featuring the Philippine Rise.
The ceremonial send-off is in line with the first anniversary of renaming the Benham Rise to Philippine Rise under Executive Order No. 25 signed on May 16, 2017 by President Duterte.
