RP Tourism is Sustaining its Momentum PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 01 March 2007

23 February 2007 – “This will be another great year as far as tourism is concerned,” assured Department of Tourism Secretary Ace Durano in his presentation before MBC members held at Hotel Inter-Continental Manila.

Durano notes that despite the meager P90 million-budget from the national government last year, DOT managed to maximize this fund by crafting a market prioritization framework. The said framework helps the agency focus its promotion effort in its core market: China, Japan, and Korea. The high-performing government agency is expecting 3.2 million tourists this year, 14% better than the record-high 2.8 million visitors in 2006.

With the sustained momentum, DOT hopes to achieve a total of 5 million visitors by 2010. But together with the booming demand and interest in Philippine tourism, government’s infrastructure support remains the biggest challenge in spite private sector’s response of constructing and expanding hotels all over the country.
