Palace hails organizers, volunteers for ‘superb’ SEA Games launch

Malacañang on Sunday praised the organizers, volunteers, and the other people who made a “job exceedingly done” in organizing the formal launch of the 30th Southeast Asian (SEA) Games at the Philippine Arena in Bocaue, Bulacan on Saturday night.

“The opening ceremony of the 30th Southeast Asian (SEA) Games was a sight to behold. Such a delight to watch a night where all Filipinos, regardless of age, social or political status and location, went in droves to show their support to the country's hosting of the 30th SEA Games,” Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo said in a statement.

“The Office of the President congratulates the organizers, performers, volunteers, and everyone behind yesterday night's spectacular event, the first SEA Games launched in an indoor venue, at the Philippine Arena in Bulacan, for a job exceedingly well done,” he added.


Saturday night, President Rodrigo Duterte officially declared the opening of the 2019 SEA Games, which the country is hosting for the fourth time. The Philippines also hosted in 1981, 1991, and 2005.

Duterte, along with thousands of Filipino spectators, swayed to the beat of the iconic song "Manila" by Filipino band Hotdog which was played during the parade of more than 1,000 Philippine athletes competing for the SEA Games.

During the opening ceremony, Phisgoc chair and House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano assured the 11 participating countries that: "We build as one, we work as one, we win as one."
