About 400 individuals from various sectors attended the 1st Central Luzon Sustainable Tourism Summit at Subic Bay Exhibition and Convention Center.
This is a project of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority Tourism Department, in partnership with the Department of Tourism (DOT) and Tourism Promotions Board.
In his message, DOT Regional Director Richard Daenos emphasized that sustainable tourism is a commitment.
“Sustainable Tourism is no longer just a concept but a commitment we make to the environment, our communities, and future generations,” he said.
Daenos furthered that tourism becomes a force for good if it benefits local economies and empowers the people and the planet.
Anchored on the theme “Practical Approaches Towards a Greener Philippines”, the two-day event provided an avenue for industry experts, visionaries, and other partners to spark dialogues and educate on the topics circling sustainable tourism.
Among the highlights of the summit was the Central Luzon activation of Bisita, Be My Guest (BBMG) of DOT and Department of Migrant Workers.
BBMG is an incentivized promotional campaign wherein Filipinos, specially Overseas Filipino Workers and Overseas and Former Filipinos, who invite foreigners to visit the country will be entitled to a raffle ticket and have a chance to win special prizes.
It will run until April 30, 2024. (CLJD/RGP-PIA 3)
