MetadataShow full item record
The government has unveiled its list of deliverables within the six-month closure of Boracay, giving a clearer picture of what the island’s locals and tourists should expect by the end of the shutdown. Meanwhile, some “big hotels” in Boracay are keeping about 20 to 30 percent of their workforce despite the half-year closure for rehabilitation, a local official said Wednesday. The island, known for its fine white sand beaches, will be closed to tourists next week after President Rodrigo Duterte ordered a six-month closure.
