Boracay rehabilitation should serve as a model
MetadataShow full item record
The re-opening of Boracay Island on October 26 is probably the most awaited development in the tourism sector. Rehabilitation works are still ongoing in the famous island destination and if regulations and environmental laws are strictly enforced, Boracay should have no problem in shedding the cesspool tag given by President Rodrigo Duterte before he ordered its closure. Department of Environment and Natural Resources Secretary Roy Cimatu, who is also the chairperson of the Boracay Task Force, is the most upbeat about Boracay’s re-opening. He says visitors can expect a “new and improved” Boracay Island, adding the island’s white beach is already “very clean” and safe for swimming.
