MetadataShow full item record
Senator Win Gatchalian is proposing the creation of a Boracay Island Development Authority, which aims to sustain the rehabilitation and development of Boracay into a truly world-class tourism destination that would be the envy of the entire world. He said BIDA would be created along the lines of the Intramuros Administration, the attached agency of the Department of Tourism that runs the famous heritage site in Manila, as a separate administrative entity which will be tasked to oversee the planning, development, and administration of the island. To safeguard the environmental integrity of Boracay's renowned beaches and waters, he said BIDA would be armed with strong regulatory and enforcement powers.
