Boracay to reopen with only few businesses deemed compliant
MetadataShow full item record
Only a small portion of businesses on Boracay Island are deemed compliant with environmental and accreditation requirements just weeks before the resort island returns to operation on Oct. 26 in a so-called “soft opening.” Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Officer-in-Charge Eduardo M. Año said in a news conference that Boracay, which was closed down for six months in April, has 454 businesses, including hotels and restaurants, with only 225 deemed having achieved various compliance milestones. Specifically, Mr. Año said only 71 establishments have complied with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources(DENR) order to establish their own sewage treatment plants.
