The Office of the Press Secretary disclosed in a statement that Marcos presented the proposal during his second meeting with the Cabinet, held virtually.
The Philippine leader cited as an example Singapore’s policies and infrastructure plans, which are considered the main contributors to its good tourism performance despite limited natural resources.
It is very important to improve guidelines and the infrastructure sector in the Philippines to boost tourism-related activities in the country. That can be done, we just need to support the plan to develop this whole enabling environment, Marcos said.
The head of state also addressed the idea of improving health facilities in major tourist destinations, such as the island of Boracay.
