CITY OF SAN FERNANDO -- Central Luzon State University (CLSU) and Aurora State College of Technology (Ascot) shall both host the second leg of the Asean Campus Forum of Philippine Information Agency (PIA) in Central Luzon to be held this week.

The CLSU event is scheduled on May 3 while the ASCOT activity will be on May 5.

“As part of hyping the Philippine Chairmanship of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) this 2017, PIA in Central Luzon will be holding campus forums in different provinces to educate and pitch support from the youth in this endeavor,” PIA-Central Luzon Director William Beltran said.

Each forum shall feature discussions from Department of Foreign Affairs on Political-Security Community Pillar, Department of Trade and Industry on Economic Community Pillar, and Department of Social Welfare and Development on Socio-Cultural Community Pillar.

“An on-the-spot poster making contest will be held for students of the host university/college as an ancillary activity. The entries shall be exhibited and winners announced during the campus forum proper,” Beltran added.

PIA-Central Luzon held the first leg of its Campus Forum at Tarlac State University last March 30.
