With sole regulator status: Tieza sees better water services when Boracay reopens this Oct.
MetadataShow full item record
The Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority (TIEZA) said it expects more competition between the two water service providers in Boracay after TIEZA was recognized as the sole regulator for the service on the island. TIEZA said it can benchmark operational data of the two service providers and promote efficiency with incentives, as well as impose penalties for failure to meet commitments. The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) earlier said that TIEZA was the sole regulator of water utilities on the resort island, allowing the agency to divide the island between the Ayala Group’s Boracay Island Water Inc. and Lucio Tan’s Boracay Tubi Systems Inc.
