Quirino tourism office unveils provincial tourism master plan

CABARROGUIS, Quirino, Jan. 30 (PIA) -- The Provincial Tourism Office here recently bared the 15 eco-tourism projects to be developed under the tourism master plan from 2010-2015.

Provincial Tourism Officer Aurea V. Martinez said these projects include the ongoing construction of wake boarding sports facilities, improvement of the Capitol Sports Complex, establishment of Zafari and Zoo Park, construction of motocross track and trail, firing range and purchase of white water rafting equipment.

Martinez said the provincial government will also establish a commercial plaza and sports complex, procure additional boats for sustainable development of the I Love Quirino Park, improve the Aglipay Caves & Campsite and Governor’s Rapids and sustain the road side tree plantation.

“The province will also come up with a heritage and cultural program for all municipalities through the involvement of secondary, tertiary and vocational institutions to preserve the indigenous culture and dialect,” Martinez added.

Meantime, the provincial government shall also push through with the construction of North Eastern Luzon Expressway (NELEX) at Nagtipunan-Dinadiawan, Aurora-Alfonso Castaneda, Nueva Vizcaya-Caranglan- San Jose City, Nueva Ecija.

The project entails the construction of around 133-175 kilometers of roads and 1,950 km of bridges. The proposed road will serve as an alternate to Dalton Pass and it is expected to strengthen inter-regional transport linkages, promote strong physical integration and hasten the development of the province.

The feasibility study is also on going for the construction of Quirino Airport to be established at Aglipay-Maddela with an implementation schedule of 2012-2040.

The tourism master plan is in line with the priority development thrusts of Gov. Junie E. Cua and Cong. Dax Cua to place the province in the national development road map, which in turn aims at transforming the province into a one sstop ecotourism and adventure destination in Cagayan Valley.(TCB/PIA 2)
