Snippets: BORACAY Island will further open its doors to more local tourists on Oct. 1, thus signaling the continued resurgence of domestic tourism nationwide.
This development came as a result of a special meeting convened by the principals of the Boracay Inter-agency Task Force (BIATF) led by its chairperson Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu and co-vice chairpersons, Interior and Local Government Secretary Eduardo Año and Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat, with the Province of Aklan Gov. Florencio Miraflores on Sept. 22.
“The reopening of Boracay to new market sources signals a gathering momentum for domestic tourism all over the country. We are pleased that the BIATF and the local government units of the Province of Aklan and Municipality of Malay have agreed to put health and safety as the priority as we carefully and safely welcome more guests to the island,” Puyat said.
