TESDA opened the week-long celebrations on Monday with a simultaneous flag raising ceremony nationwide.

TESDA Director General Isidro Lapeña said that the agency created an online platform where Filipinos all over the world can virtually join the activities.

“They can access the website. There, we prepared different services that the public can avail of and video content that they can watch.  In this virtual celebration, we can also show our continuous adjustment to the new normal as the training arm of the government,” Lapeña said.
