by Redjie Cawis / PIA

President Benigno Aquino III together with ambassadors and environment officials are expected to attend the 58th Annual National Mine Safety and Environment Conference on Nov. 8 to 12 in Baguio City.

Philippine Mine Safety and Environment Association (PMSEA) president Louie Sarmiento said that activities have been lined-up for the guests and participants to this year’s grandest four-day event of the country’s minerals industry to ensure a meaningful gathering experience.

Sarmiento said that the PMSEA has also scheduled the main event of the conference, the testimonial dinner and annual awards night, on 11-11-11 (11 November 2011) to further highlight the yearly mining and environmental tradition.

The testimonial dinner and annual awards night will be highlighted by the presence of Pres. Aquino with Department of Environment and Natural Resources Sec. Ramon Paje, ambassadors, church and religious leaders, the academe, non-government organizations, and local government officials of Baguio City and Benguet.

Sarmiento said the 58th ANMSEC with  the theme, “Responsible mining: Enabling a better future,” will  officially begin with a tree planting ceremony by the PMSEA officials and members with the City Government of Baguio inside the Botanical Garden as a way of giving back the fruits of Mother Nature, which has been providing bountiful blessings to the industry.

Under a memorandum of agreement signed last year with the city government, PMSEA adopted a 1,000-square meter area inside the Botanical Garden to develop and nurture for five years. It is the group’s way of showing its concern for the environment.

The annual tradition of the Philippine minerals industry dates back to 1938. On Nov. 17, 1967, by virtue of Presidential Proclamation 115-A, November was declared as Mine Safety and Accident Prevention Month.
