BAGUIO CITY – Mayor Mauricio Domogan issued Administrative Order No. 195-2018 suspending the implementation of the Baguio Number Coding Scheme for private motor vehicles to give way to the 65th Mine Safety and Environment Week and the 69th edition of the Fil-Am invitational amateur golf tournament happening from November 19 to December 14.

“We need to suspend the implementation of the number coding scheme for all private vehicles only in order to provide convenience to members of the mining industry and other stakeholders and our golfers, visitors and their families a stress-free journey around the city,” Domogan said.

The summer capital annually hosts the 65th Annual Mine Safety and Environment Conference spearheaded by the Philippine Mine Safety and Environment Association (PMSEA)  from November 20 to 23 with some 500 mining industry stakeholders converging in the city to discuss pertinent issues and concerns affecting the country’s mining industry.

The theme of this year’s PMSEA gathering is “65 Years of Responsible Mining: Industry and Regulator Together in Advocating and Promoting Responsible Mining.”

The Baguio Country Club and the Camp John Hay, meantime, will host the annual 69th Fil-Am invitational amateur golf tournament from November 28 to December 15, with over 1,000 participants expected from different parts of the world.
