P5-M PTA fund seen to enhance ComVal capitol tourist site image

Nabunturan, Compostela Valley (7 May) -- The Philippine Tourism Authority (PTA) infused P5 million to the ongoing program of Governor Arturo Uy to develop the vast Capitol ground of the provincial government in Brgy. Cabidianan, in the capital Nabunturan into one of the top tourist destinations sites of Compostela Valley.

Provincial tourism section chief Christine T. Dompor said PTA, through its General Manager Mark Lapid, released the money last March following a visit by PTA technical people to the province last February 16 to assess the beautification and tourist potentials of the Capitol grounds.

Quoting Gov. Uy, Dompor said, talks about the beautification project were done last year. Satisfied by the continuing improvement and noting the concentration of major events in the Capitol ground, the PTA staff endorsed the release of the fund.

The Capitol is four kilometres away from the commercial centre of Nabunturan. Because of its wide expanse, it hosts major annual provincial events particularly the Bulawan Festival and the founding anniversary celebrations.

Dompor said Capitol is in itself a tourist attraction because of its unique architecture, well-manicured lawns, and the Solidarity Ring, the biggest gold ring in the country, on exhibit daily at the lobby.

She said PTA was impressed by Governor Uy's initiative to beautify the grounds with 60 percent of improvements already in place.

Further quoting the governor, the tourism officer said the PTA money will be used to augment the cost of converting the capitol grounds into a park that will hold a playground for children and a library. (tss/ids comval) [top]
