“Under the vision of the President., the Department of Tourism’s objectives are to further enhance the development and promotion of key destinations and equalize development by supporting lesser-known areas across our Regions. These Awards inspire us in the Department of Tourism to work even harder as the Marcos administration ushers in the resurgence of the tourism industry as a major pillar of economic growth and a source of livelihood for millions of Filipinos. As we anticipate the influx of more tourists, we shall continue the work to improve the overall tourist experience in the Philippines and herald the best of the Filipino brand to the world,” the tourism chief added.
