Soon, you’ll see the Philippine map, EEZ and Sabah on passports


The House panel has now approved a bill requiring the printing the map of the Philippines, including its 200-mile exclusive economic zone and Sabah on Philippine passports.

Cagayan de Oro City Representative Rufus Rodriguez said the move to print the map on the travel document will emphasize and insist the country’s victory on the West Philippine Sea over China in the Permanent Court of Arbitration in the Hague, the Netherlands, and its legal and historical rights over Sabah.

“The inclusion of the map on our travel document is a strong statement that we are asserting our sovereign rights over the West Philippine Sea and our EEZ,” he said.
