Recognizing the role of the Nayong Pilipino in attracting more tourists to visit Clark, Aguilar-Ong said that more activities and features that will ignite local culture and tradition will be expected inside the 3.5-hectare theme park.

In an article posted in iOrbit News, Aguilar-Ong mentioned that the plan of revamping the state-owned cultural theme park will help in bringing in more guests and tourists here. She also added that this plan will also benefit Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) who want to revisit Filipino culture and tradition.

“A big number of our compatriots are deployed across the globe and the Filipino culture will serve as a link to them, “Aguilar-Ong said in the article.

“Minsan hindi mo na kilala ang kapwa mo Filipino, so I think we will reintroduce our culture,” she added while highlighting the importance of creating more attractions in Nayong Pilipino in the future.

Meanwhile, CDC expressed support in the said plan as it considers Nayong Pilipino as one of its major tourist attractions in the Freeport.

Nayong Pilipino has always been one of the locations visited by domestic and foreign tourists, making this Freeport as part of their regular destinations. Recently, CDC welcomed some 525 Chinese tourists who explored various destinations here including Nayong Pilipino and Clark Museum.

Aside from Aguilar-Ong, Lucille Malilong – Isberto was also appointed as new board member of NPFI.
