MetadataShow full item record
Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu on Saturday vowed to deliver a “new Boracay” once the government completed its rehabilitation of the island which began on April 26. But, Cimatu said, the government needed the support of all sectors for the cleanup of the popular tourist island to be successful. “Let me reiterate — the government will not and should not do the cleanup alone. (We) need your help to ensure that Boracay remains at its best now and in the future,” he said in a statement. For that to happen, all hands, including those of government employees, business owners, workers, residents and even local and foreign tourists, must be on deck.
