Accurate data on tourist arrivals seen
by PIO release

The local government is expected to come out with a close to accurate data on tourist arrivals following the implementation of an ordinance mandating all tourism-related establishments to submit to the City Tourism Office their report on tourists patronizing their establishments.

Councilor Elmer O. Datuin, chair of the city council committee on tourism, special events, parks and playgrounds, said that based on the data obtained from 120 hotels, inns, and transient houses that started complying with the ordinance, there were more than 1.7 million tourists in the city last year which was much higher than the 1.4 million tourists recorded in 2016.

He was one of the guests during the launching of the City Hall Hour, a monthly press briefing with City Hall officials organized by the City Public Information Office under the City Mayor’s Office.

He said that there are 175 hotels registered with the city but only 120 of them are submitting the required standard data on tourist arrivals to the City Tourism Office.

He said the data on tourist arrivals will play a key role for policy-makers in the city, especially in the provision of adequate resources that will cater to the basic needs of the people while they are here.

He said that the inclusion of Panagbenga in the registry of the International Festivals and Events Association and Baguio City as the only city in the country to be part of the Creative Cities Network of Unesco has given added mileage to the city in the global market.

With the ongoing renewal and processing of new business permits in the city, Datuin said that one of the strategies that will be undertaken by the local government is to make the compliance of tourism-related establishments on the submission of the standard data on tourist arrivals as one of the requirement that should be complied by the owners before the release or renewal of their permits.

He requested the management of tourism-related establishments in the city to submit the data to the concerned office.
