by Press release

The Department of Tourism urged the private sector to invest more in developing the country’s tourism areas.

“We need all kinds of businesses from accommodation, food and beverage services; we need transport operators, tour and travel agencies. We need facilities that will help us provide tourists the best experience whatever product they choose from beach adventure to wellness,” said Tourism Sec. Bernadette Romulo-Puyat.

She said the department is continuously working to attract local and foreign investors to help develop the country's tourism spots, as it intensifies its campaign to entice the foreigners to choose the Philippines as their next destination.

She noted that “so much more that can be done” in order for the tourism sector make bigger contributions to the economy and provide more livelihood for Filipinos.

Romulo-Puyat also underscored the need for successful implementation of the National Tourism Development Plan (NTDP), in which the sector is expected to grow at an average of 10 percent per annum and contribute P3.9 trillion to the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) by 2022.

“How do we engage travelers? First, we need adequate infrastructure, ease of travel facilitation, safety and security, and develop tourism areas,” she said.

The tourism chief further said the department is undertaking a convergence program where it coordinates with other national government agencies.

She cited the DOT’s collaboration with the Department of Transportation in the construction, rehabilitation and upgrading of the country's domestic and international airports.
