The Executive Committee of the International Mathematics Competition has appointed the MTG, Philippines to host simultaneously the 2009 Asia Inter-cities Teenagers Mathematics Olympiad (AITMO) and 2009 Philippine Elementary Mathematics International Competition (PEMIC) dubbed as Philippine International Mathematics Competition (PIMC) 2009 on November 28, 2009 to December 2, 2009.

The selection process of the participants to represent the Philippines to the abovementioned contests will follow strict guidelines of which only the winners in the math contests held abroad shall be considered as potential participants. In other words, joining any math competitions in another country is a stepping stone and winning a competition is an opportunity to be a likely member of the Philippine team (international category) in the forthcoming PIMC 2009.

Therefore, all Filipino math whiz kids are encouraged to do their best when they will be sent to participate in the international math competitions in order to have the chance to join the PIMC in the later part of 2009.

Moreover, a parallel national math contest shall be conducted. This is a math competition with an all Filipino participants but international in character and nature because its rules, award system, and contest problems are those of the 2009 AITMO and 2009 PEMIC. The participants here are those coming from the public and private elementary and secondary schools having no opportunity to join math contest abroad. In this category, Filipino participants will be competing among themselves. Divisional and regional competitions shall be conducted in order to select the participants for the parallel national math contest.

It should be noted that the 2009 AITMO and 2009 PEMIC have two identities. Firstly, it is an international math competitions in which Philippines will have some teams to compete with other international teams. Secondly, a parallel math competition will be conducted whereby participants are all Filipinos who will be competing among themselves.
