The 14th National Press Congress has been set on Dec. 10-12, 2009 at the Subic Bay International Exhibition and Convention Center, Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) Free port Zone.
The Annual media events enjoy the mandate of presidential Proclamation 1187 which declares December as "National Press Congress Month and the Month of the Community Press in the Service of the Nation."
The same proclamation designates the Publishers Association of the Philippines, Inc. (PAPI) as lead agency for the annual observance.
The press congress will have "The Challenges of the Information-Driven Age" for its theme, around which the various topics of discussion will revolve.
Aside from its regular participants that usually include publishers, editors, reporters, broadcasters, corporate public affairs officer and executives, government information officers, campus writers, mass communication instructors and students, foreign-based Filipino journalists are also expected to attend the event, which has some foreign experts invited as resource speakers.
