DILG: Full Boracay rehab to take 2 years
MetadataShow full item record
The full rehabilitation of Boracay Island will take about two years, the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) said, ahead of the reopening of the world-renowned beach destination to local and foreign tourists later this month. “Boracay is now very fresh and very orderly but of course there are still a lot of things to be done for the next two years,” DILG officer-in-charge Eduardo Año said. He added that while local and foreign tourists will be welcomed back to Boracay during its soft reopening on October 26, it will take about two years to complete the island’s rehabilitation.
