PIA Press Release

DOT 2 sees more jobs despite global economic crisis

Tuguegarao City (9 February) -- Amidst the issue on global economic meltdown, the Department of Tourism (DOT) Region 2 is confident to obtain increase in tourist arrivals and tourist investments that will generate more job opportunities this year.

According to regional director Blessida G. Diwa, the tourism industry in the region will contribute to the effort of the government by providing more job opportunities despite the economic crisis thru the development of tourist hubs and expansion of hotels and restaurants in the different provinces in the region.

Diwa said, last year, DOT obtained a satisfactory increase in tourist arrivals from Europe, China and other domestic tourists who were amazed by the natural beauty of Cagayan Valley.

"The Callao Caves in Peņablanca, the Basilica Minore in Piat and the beaches in Sta. Ana remain to be the most visited tourism sites in the valley including the old Spanish structural churches," Diwa said.

With the expansion of different hotels, Diwa is looking forward to more than 3,000 new jobs to be created, plus the hiring of additional workers for the developing tourist hubs in different parts of the region.

To fulfill this vision, DOT is doing aggressive marketing and promotions to invite more tourists from abroad and from the different parts of the country.

"When tourists come in, it means more jobs, more livelihood and more food to every table of the people of Cagayan Valley," Diwa added.

Diwa further encouraged everyone to promote the valley as the Caving Capital of the Philippines. (PIA Cagayan) [top]
