Boracay rehab to boost external payments - BSP
MetadataShow full item record
The rehabilitation of Boracay island is likely to boost the country’s external payments position in the long term through a more sustainable tourism industry, according to the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas. BSP Deputy Governor Diwa Guinigundo said the impending six-month closure of the world-renowned tourist island would involve short-term costs of forgoing immediate tourist receipts. “But over the long term, it should result in a more sustainable tourism industry. That should be expected to bring in more and more substantial income that could further support the external payments account,” Guinigundo said.
