PIA Press Release

Leyte welcomes BSP national annual meeting as means to promote province, region

Tacloban City (April 27) -– The hosting of the Boy Scout of the Philippines National Annual Council Meeting on May 23-25 is a very good opportunity to promote Leyte and the whole of Eastern Visayas.

Thus said Congresswoman Remedios L. Petilla during the Harampang Ha PIA held Friday at the PIA Region 8 Media Lounge, where she was guest together with Mr. Antonio Cinco Jr., BSP Leyte Council Executive and Mrs. Aurora Villarente who was representing Leyte Governor Carlos Jericho L. Petilla.

The 51st BSP National Annual Council Meeting is expected to be attended by about 500 to 800 officers and executives of the 106 Boy Scout Councils all over the country, Congresswoman Petilla revealed.

Each visitor will surely spend something here in Leyte and so it will be an additional income to the business community and additional revenue for the Province, the good Congresswoman said.

To date, Congresswoman bared, all the hotels in Tacloban are already fully booked, so this is good for the tourism industry in the Province. These visitors will sure buy souvenirs of Leyte, try taking the local pedicabs and go shopping, or even just buy mineral water. All these mean additional business for the entrepreneurs of Leyte.

Aside from making arrangements for the venue at the Leyte Academic Center, Congresswoman Petilla said that the committee is also making arrangements for the holding of a Trade Fair which will highlight Leyte products and delicacies, and Garden Show which will feature flowers, fruits and vegetables grown in Leyte.

The Province of Leyte will spend a very minimal amount because the participants will pay a Registration Fee of P3,000.00, Congresswoman Petilla informed. On the first night, the Province of Leyte will sponsor the welcome night with a Barrio Fiesta at the Capitol Terrace.

The Second Night will be hosted by Congresswoman Petilla with a Beach Campfire which will feature Leyte ’s best tuba and the local bangus produce from the Leyte fish cages, and other “sumsuman” Leyte is best known for.

The third night will be hosted by the Department of Education with no less than DepEd Secretary Jesli Lapus attending. (PIA 8) [top]
