One of the greatly affected sectors during the crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic is tourism. Hence, the Cebu Provincial Government is leading the revival of Cebu’s tourism sector while the world continues to combat against COVID-19.
On June 5, Governor Gwendolyn Garcia visited Cebu’s “jewel of the north,” Malapascua Island. This visit is in lieu to the revival of Cebu tourism.
“Mao nang nagkuyog gyud mi ni (Department of Tourism) RD Shahlimar Tamano alang sa pagdala og loud signal to all nga maningkamot gyud ta nga buhion nato og balik ang turismo,”– Cebu Governor Gwen Garcia
Tamano, Daanbantayan Mayor Sun Shimura, Provincial Board member Kerrie Keane Shimura, Police Provincial Director Roderick Marianl, Logon Barangay Captain Lemuel Dano jointed Gov. Garcia.
“Ug mao na ang akong giangkon karon nga dako kaayo nga tulumanon, pagtabang, dili lang gani niining Isla sa Malapascua, lakip na ang uban natong mga lungsod nga turismo maoy main source of livelihood,”– Governor Garcia
Other popular tourism sites in Cebu province include Olsob, Badian, Alegria, Bantayan, Camotes Island and Moalboal.
Garcia, together with Tamano and the Department of Tourism (DOT), assured that they will help in reviving the tourism industry amidst this pandemic.
When our tourism sector and business sector are to face the new normal, let us not forget to #SupportLocal by buying local.
