Issues on Cultural Heritage Management in the Philippines
The government’s support for cultural development is particularly highlighted by the passage of
R.A. 7356
that created the NCCA. The coordination among the cultural agencies was strengthened by the virtue of
Executive Order No. 80
, which placed the
Cultural Center of the Philippines, the National Historical Commission of the Philippines
, the
National Museum
, the
National Library of the Philippines
, and the
National Archives of the Philippines
under the NCCA umbrella.

Further, through
Republic Act No. 9155
, administratively attached the earlier aforementioned five cultural agencies to the NCCA, including now the
Komisyon sa Wikang Filipino / Commission on the Filipino Language
. Thus, the NCCA is responsible for culture and the arts in the Philippines

Within each institutions are sub-offices representing territorial units (regional, provincial, municipal)
