MetadataShow full item record
More than 300 establishments in Boracay Island in Aklan have been shut down for various violations since the island-resort was closed to tourists for rehabilitation efforts more than a month ago. Regional Director Anthony Nuyda of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG)-6 said the closures were the result of the ongoing checks by the Boracay Inspection Committee (BIC). The BIC is checking more or less 2,500 establishments in Boracay Island until June 15, 2018, to ensure that they are compliant with permits and other government requirements.
