The Philippine National Games (PNG) officially known as the POC-PSC Games is a national multi-sport tournament in the Philippines. It was created as a means to determine the possible composition of national pool athletes that will compete in international tournaments such as the Southeast Asian Games, Asian Games and the Olympics.[1]



The Philippine National Games (PNG) was created by virtue of Executive Order No. 163 dated March 3, 1994 during the term of former President Fidel V. Ramos.[1]

The first edition was held in Manila in 1994, then the next edition was held two years later in the same venue. Cebu City hosted the third edition in 1997. However the games were scrapped in 1998 due to lack of funds to organize the event.[2][3] The holding of games were halted until its revival in 2011. Since then the games were held annually.[4]Starting from the 2011 edition the Philippine Sports Committee has been co-organizing the games with the Philippine Olympic Committee.[5]

The 2015 edition was divided into three legs which was hosted in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao with each leg including 10 events each for the same sports doubling as qualifiers for the 2016 edition.[6][7]Starting the 2016 edition the PNG will be LGU-based. In the previous editions athlete represented their school, club or a sponsoring group. Athletes will be able to formally represent their municipality, city or province at the games but in the finals athletes will only represent one of the four regions; Luzon, Visayas, Mindanao and National Capital Region.[8]

The Philippine Youth Games – Batang Pinoy or simply Batang Pinoy (lit. Filipino Youth) is the national youth sports competition of the Philippines for athletes under 15 years old. Unlike the Palarong Pambansa a competition for student athletes, the Batang Pinoy also includes the out-of-school youth.



The Batang Pinoy was established through the Executive Order No. 44 which was signed by then President Joseph Estrada in December 2, 1988.[1] The first edition was held in Bacolod in 1999.[3] From then, the games were held annually with Santa Cruz, Laguna[4] (2000), Bacolod[5] (2001) Puerto Princesa[6] (2002) hosting the next three editions. The 2002 and prior editions, were for athletes of 12 years and below.[6]

In 2003, the Philippine Sports Commission decided to put the competition, along with its other national competitions, on hold so the sports body could reallocate funds to the national teams' stint at the Southeast Asian Games.[7] The Batang Pinoy was held again in 2011, and is held annually since then.[8]

National Budget Circular 542


National Budget Circular 542, issued by the Department of Budget and Management on August 29, 2012, reiterates compliance with Section 93 of the General Appropriations Act of FY2012. Section 93 is the Transparency Seal provision, to wit:


Sec. 93. Transparency Seal. To enhance transparency and enforce accountability, all national government agencies shall maintain a transparency seal on their official websites. The transparency seal shall contain the following information: (i) the agency’s mandates and functions, names of its officials with their position and designation, and contact information; (ii) annual reports, as required under National Budget Circular Nos. 507 and 507-A dated January 31, 2007 and June 12, 2007, respectively, for the last three (3) years; (iii) their respective approved budgets and corresponding targets immediately upon approval of this Act; (iv) major programs and projects categorized in accordance with the five key results areas under E.O. No. 43, s. 2011; (v) the program/projects beneficiaries as identified in the applicable special provisions; (vi) status of implementation and program/project evaluation and/or assessment reports; and (vii) annual procurement plan, contracts awarded and the name of contractors suppliers/consultants.

The respective heads of the agencies shall be responsible for ensuring compliance with this section. 


A transparency Seal, prominently displayed on the main page of the website of a particular government agency, is a certificate that it has complied with the requirements of Section 93. This Seal links to a page within the agency’s website which contains an index of downloadable items of each of the above-mentioned documents. 




A pearl buried inside a tightly-shut shell is practically worthless. Government information is a pearl, meant to be shared with the public in order to maximize its inherent value. 

The Transparency Seal, depicted by a pearl shining out of an open shell, is a symbol of a policy shift towards openness in access to government information. On the one hand, it hopes to inspire Filipinos in the civil service to be more open to citizen engagement; on the other, to invite the Filipino citizenry to exercise their right to participate in governance. 

This initiative is envisioned as a step in the right direction towards solidifying the position of the Philippines as the Pearl of the Orient – a shining example for democratic virtue in the region.
