By: Embassy of the Republic of the Philippines, Seoul

The Maritime and Archipelagic Nation Awareness Month (MANA Mo, Presidential Proclamation 316 s. 2017) is celebrated every September of each year. It aims to raise awareness and consciousness of the Filipinos on the maritime and archipelagic features and concerns of the Philippines as a maritime domain, and be able to engage individuals, sectors and social groups to take action toward realizing our collective identity and potential as a maritime and archipelagic nation.

The MANA Mo theme for 2018 is "Inclusive and People-Centered Development through Maritime Heritage Awareness". With this, it provides everyone the opportunity to take a look at our maritime culture and history and also look forward to addressing issues and concerns through the collective efforts of the Filipino people.
