Boracay rehab plan now with Palace for action
MetadataShow full item record
The environment, interior and tourism departments have submitted a detailed proposal on the rehabilitation of Boracay Island, an issue that may be discussed during today’s Cabinet meeting, Malacañang said yesterday. In a text message, Senior Deputy Executive Secretary Menardo Guevarra said “the final action on Boracay may be taken up at the (Cabinet meeting).” Last February, Duterte likened Boracay to a pool of human waste because of lack of sewerage system and threatened to close the island if the problem is not addressed. Duterte said local officials who failed to solve the environmental woes of the tourist spot are liable for neglect of duty.
