However, SM said that the MOA Annex, S Maison and SMX Convention Center will be closed on Nov. 12 but will resume operations the next day. Also, shops facing these buildings will be closed.

According to an article by ABS CBN, from Nov. 11, 10pm to midnight of Nov. 12, the SMX Convention Center will be on “lockdown” for the ASEAN gala night.

President Rodrigo Duterte declared November 13, 14, and 15 as special (non-working) days in the National Capital Region (NCR) and the provinces of Pampanga and Bulacan. Access issues and security preparations for the international summit were cited as reasons for the suspension.
