The Philippine Institute of Civil Engineers (PICE), an active member of the Philippine Technological Council (PTC) will be participating on this year’s ASEAN Federation of Engineering Organizations (AFEO) 19th Mid-Term Meetings scheduled on August 17-27, 2020 wherein various technical working groups meet through online meeting instead of face-to-face as earlier advised due to this COVID-19 pandemic.
Philippine Technological Council is one of the founding members of AFEO, an engineering organization comprise of countries in the ASEAN Region with a common goal of professional pursuit of engineering, to promote goodwill and mutual understanding, and to establish and develop an ASEAN baseline standard for the engineering profession with the objective of facilitating mobility of the engineers within the ASEAN Countries. To fulfill and achieve these objectives, AFEO members convene twice a year. The first one is the Mid-Term Meetings which happens usually in July to August and the second is the Annual Conference of ASEAN Federation of Engineering Organizations or CAFEO.
The PICE/PTC representatives to the working-group committee are
responsible to participate and observe the proceedings of the committee
PICE’s participation to these meetings would promote the Filipino brand of engineering in the ASEAN as we endeavor to further strengthen our participation in the AFEO.
