Palace media briefing kicks off PGMA's tourism super region tour

Manila (19 February) -- Some 40 journalists based in the Visayas and other areas with rich tourism potentials will be given a media briefing on Friday, February 19, 2010, at the Heroes Hall of Malacaņang as the launching event for President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo's week-long tour of the Tourism Super Region, one of 5 growth corridors defined in her 2006 "super region" strategic development plan.

"We have invited media personalities to the briefing, which will include an open forum with ranking officials of government agencies and presentations on Philippine economy in general, tourism and other Super Regions," the Office of the Press Secretary (OPS) said.

The Tourism Super Region tour is the fourth leg of her five-Super Region tour started three weeks ago with her visit to the Cyber Corridor, which consists of major cities nationwide with large information and communication firms and business process outsourcing corporations.

The second Super Region visited was the Urban Luzon Beltway consisting of South Luzon, CALABARZON, Metro Manila and Central Luzon regions envisioned as a major logistics and services hub in the Pacific-Asia rim that accounts for about $1 trillion of the estimated $3.5 trillion global logistics market. Early this week, the Chief Executive traveled through Agribusiness Mindanao Super Region, to project the region as "breadbasket of the Philippines."

Malacaņang officials described Philippine tourism as a sunshine industry that could be optimized through private sector intervention. (PIA-MMIO) [top]
