Tourism Secretary Berna Romulo-Puyat couldn’t be any happier.
She was ecstatic to announce that the Philippines would start welcoming foreign tourists from green list countries very soon.
“It was a long and hard road to recovery, but the industry is finally seeing its efforts pay off,” the secretary said.
“This difficult and daunting task was made easier with the men and women at the DOT by our side, the staunch support of our tourism stakeholders and workers, whom I consider the pillar that kept us standing amid this difficult time, and, of course, the traveling public,” she did not forget to acknowledge.
“With everyone pulling together in the right direction, we’re looking forward to sustaining the momentum of our industry’s recovery,” Puyat added.
