MANILA, Philippines — There is no official declaration of non-working days in Manila for the 31st ASEAN summit and related meetings in November.

In an advisory sent to reporters on Wednesday, Malacañang said: “On ASEAN holiday. No official issuance yet. Will post once provided.”

The Palace issued the statement after a photo of a memorandum declaring a “special non-working holiday” on November 13-15 surfaced on social media.

The document was supposedly issued by the Office of the President.

The Philippines is chair of the ASEAN this year. Members of the 10-nation regional bloc take turns at chairmanship.

The 31st ASEAN Summit and Related Summits will be held together with ASEAN dialogue partners Australia, Canada, China, the European union, India, Japan, New Zealand, Russia, South Korea and the United States.
