The Boracay Foundation Inc. (BFI) hit concerned government agencies for their “apparent apathetic treatment” of Boracay stakeholders. The BFI, which is comprised of business groups, slammed the lack of “efficient communication process” amid the six-month tourism closure of the island in Malay, Aklan. In an official statement, the foundation claimed that since the start of the closure on April 26, 2018, they have repeatedly called upon the agencies to have a regular weekly or bi-monthly updates on their targets and objectives for the rehabilitation.
