The Department of Tourism (DOT) has stated that it is ready to make Mindanao a global tourist spot in 2017, despite threats in the peace and development aspects in the area.
“We will bring Mindanao to global tourism this year,” Tourism Assistant Secretary Frederick Alegre said.
Alegre explained that government agencies will complement the private sector, which is mainly the driving force of tourism.
“The present administration is committed to ending the peace and order problem. We will build necessary infrastructure to support tourism and – this is important – for every negative publicity, we will have at least 12 positive promotions,” Alegre told Rappler.
