Forbes Magazine's forbes.com writes about our recent Philippine Tourism Investment Forum held in Taipei
The first-ever flagship tourism event, Philippine Tourism Investment Forum in Taipei, is featured on Forbes.com.
Organized by the Philippine Trade and Investment Center (PTIC) in Taipei, the Commercial Affairs Section of the Manila Economic and Cultural Office to present opportunities and attract Taiwanese investments into the Philippine Tourism sector, MECO and PTIC worked closely with the Philippine Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority (TIEZA) and the Department of Tourism’s Taipei Office in organizing this event, the first-ever international roadshow undertaken by TIEZA.
"The Philippine government is taking a lesson from the rehabilitation of Boracay that shut down the island paradise for six months last year. Now, the clean and safe state of its famous white-sand beaches is being cited as the inspiration behind government efforts to promote a slate of other master-planned zones for tourism development. And to generate the much-needed capital for those zones, Philippine officials embarked on a roadshow in October to attract more investment from Taiwan, South Korea and Japan.
“In terms of the tourism, we want to make sure that what happened in Boracay does not happen in other areas,” says Pocholo Paragas, chief operating officer of the master-planned area’s lead government agency, the Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority."
