DTI holds value chain analysis for tourism industry in Siquijor

by Rizalie A. Calibo

Siquijor (28 November) -- With the global potentials for ecotourism on an upbeat momentum, Siquijor province is drumming up support from various stakeholders to boost its eco-tourism industry.

The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) here and the GTZ-SMEDSEP has conducted a Workshop on Value Chain Analysis last November 24 to 25 at the Coco Groove Beach Resort in San Juan, Siquijor.

DTI Provincial Director Nimfa M. Virtucio said the value chain approach is seen to stir public-private partnership that spurs economic development focusing on eco-tourism promotion as its overarching goal.

It also seeks to identify the province's potentials and advantages, actors and approaches, and analyze and address gaps that hinder tourism development.

Eco-tourism, as the major thrust of provincial government, is eyed as a tool that provides jobs and livelihood opportunities to Siquijor communities.

Earlier, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo has cited tourism sector as the single industry that has spurred so much economic development and vowed that her government will give more attention to this industry.

The President noted that big-ticket investors have taken notice of the huge potential of the country's tourist spots and have started investing accordingly. (PIA) [top]
