Of the 2,300 establishments in Aklan’s Boracay Island, only 180 of which or 7.8 percent have fulfilled the requisites of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources. Undersecretary for Policy, Planning and International Affairs Jonas Leones said based on latest figures, only 180 establishments have complied with the directives. DENR earlier promised to the Senate that 30 percent of the 2,300 commercial establishments in the island would be ready to operate and welcome tourists on Oct. 26. But barely a month before the island’s reopening, only 7.8 percent of the businesses have complied.
