PIA caps series of Christmas activities with a 'Salo-salo'

QUEZON CITY -- For the first time since the pandemic hit, the Philippine Information Agency (PIA) celebrated the Christmas season in-person and hybrid setting to include the Regional Offices in the festive occasion. Together with the Bureau of Communications Services (BCS) and the Freedom of Information - Program Management Office (FOI-PMO), the PIA family just got bigger, hence, the celebrations got merrier on December 16 at the PIA Central Office Lobby in Quezon City.

The full day of the occasion started with a Thanksgiving Mass.
