Aklan’s jetty port collection tops P118 M

by Venus G. Villanueva

KALIBO, Aklan, January 11 (PIA6) -- Aklan’s collections for 2011 from its two jetty ports reached a total of P118,404,245.22, registering an increase of 5.22 percent from P112,526,619.65 in 2010.

This was bared by Aklan Governor Carlito S. Marquez in his monthly report of activities and accomplishments recently aired over a local radio station here.

The jetty ports being managed by the province are located at Caticlan, Malay, the jump-off point to Boracay Island, and at Cagban in the island.

Based on data furnished by the Economic Enterprise Development Department (EEDD) to the governor, collections peaked in April with collections amounting to P16,672,22.73, followed by May with P14,262,122.89 and December with P11,226,927.10.

Data on the number of tourist arrivals followed the same trend, according to the said report.

The month of September last year registered the leanest figure of collections with P3,975,562.84, partly due to weather disturbance that prevented visitors from visiting Boracay Island.

September had also the lowest number of visitors to the island last year, with 52,994 arrivals, while April registered the highest, with 121,301.

Revenues generated by the jetty ports include boat fares, terminal and environmental fees.

Aklan natives are exempted from paying terminal and environmental fees. (JCM/VGV PIA 6 Aklan)
