The Department of Tourism-Cordillera recognized three local government units in the region for their initiatives in reporting tourism data in their localities.

Baguio City, Apayao, and Benguet were cited for their tourism statistics initiative during the culmination activity of the 28th National Statistics Month last week at the University of the Philippines-Baguio.

DOT Regional Director Marie Venus Tan, Philippine Statistics Authority Regional Director Villafe Alibuyog, and University of the Philippines Baguio Chancellor Raymundo Rovillos awarded plaques to representatives of the three LGUs. 

Tan said these LGUs have complied with the requirements set by the DOT particularly in reporting statistical data on tourism arrivals in their localities.

She said that having reliable data on tourism is very important as it is part of the economy of the LGUs and the country as well.

Despite the problem of not having permanent tourism officers, Tan encouraged all the LGUs in the region to comply with collating data and statistics in their local tourism industry.

She said this is also important for the budgetary requirements and other strategic planning for development of the LGUs.

She said local tourism officers should sustain the data gathering on tourism statistics and should be submitted on time as well.

Given the importance of tourism in the overall economic growth in the country, the PSA and the DOT are closely working to measure the contribution of tourism in the economy through the institutionalization of the Philippine Tourism Satellite Accounts.
