Philippine Olympic CommitteeEdit
The Philippine Sports Commission Act recognizes the role of the Philippine Olympic Committee as the national Olympic body for the International Olympic Committee. It also recognizes the autonomy of the Philippine Olympic Committee and likewise states that all National Sports Associations shall be Autonomous as well.
The Act designates the Philippine Olympic Committee as primarily responsible for activities related to the country's participation in the Olympic Games (International Olympic Committee), Asian Games (Olympic Council of Asia), Southeast Asian Games (Southeast Asian Games Federation), and other international athletic competitions.
The Philippine Sports Commission has a partnership with the United States Sports Academy (USSA) through a Protocol of Cooperation signed in 2017. In May 2018, the PSC entered into a partnership with the USSA where the later will provide masters and doctorate degree certifications to Filipino sports officials. The Philippine government and the USSA had a similar program in the early 1980s during the administration of then-President Ferdinand Marcos.
The PSC has also relations with bodies from other countries such as Australia, Cuba, China, South Korea, Russia, and Spain to help the PSC develop sports in the country.
