    Senate president pro tempore Loren Legarda welcomes the election of National
    Archives of the Philippines director Victorino Manalo as the new chairperson of the
    National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA). She reassures her
    continuous commitment to promoting Philippine culture.

    Legarda, NCCA’s 2016 Dangal ng Haraya: Tagapagtaguyod ng Sining at Kultura
    (Patron of Arts and Culture) awardee, has expressed support for Manalo’s
    nomination and administered his oath of office as the 14th Chairperson of the
    NCCA last Dec. 29, 2022 held at the Metropolitan Theater in Manila.

    “I have unwavering faith that under the leadership of Chairperson Victorino Manalo,
    the NCCA will continue to foster the Filipino people’s identity and develop a sense
    of national pride through the development of original artistic expression and the
    preservation, promotion, and protection of our cultural heritage,” Legarda stated.

    As a staunch advocate of promoting the culture and the arts, Legarda has filed
    several proposed measures for the conservation of Philippine traditions and

    Among these are SBN 244 or the Philippine Culinary Heritage Act of 2022, SBN 624
    or An Act Establishing the Linangan ng LikhangBayan (Institute for Living
    Traditions), and SBN 622 amending the National Cultural Heritage Act of 2009 to
    strengthen heritage conservation in the country and mandate the local government
    units to conduct a comprehensive cultural mapping of their areas of jurisdiction.

    In partnership with the NCCA, Legarda supported various programs to preserve and
    document Filipino traditional heritage, including “Dayaw,” a documentary th at
    showcases the indigenous culture and customs of Filipinos, and “Buhay na Buhay,”
    an informative series that introduces the eight living cultures of the Philippines.

    Lahat ng ito ay para sa kultura at sining habang naiaangat natin ang kabuhayan ng
    ating kapwa, ang kinabukasan ng ating bayan at pagpapayaman ng ating
    pagkakakilanlan,” she said. “Rest assured that I remain your steadfast partner in
    strengthening the Filipino spirit, developing national identity and creativity, and
    protecting and sharing our rich cultural heritage.”

    Manalo was elected head by the NCCA Board of Commissioners, replacing
    Chairperson Rene Escalante. His term began last Jan. 1, 2023, and will end on Dec.
    31, 2025.
    Legarda also congratulated Escalante for his support and commitment to NCCA and
    for being instrumental to many of the successes of the Commission, which
    continuously makes significant and longlasting contributions to the preservation,
    development, and promotion of Philippine culture and the arts.(Reprinted from
