MetadataShow full item record
The Philippine economy might lose around P1.96 billion due to the closure of Boracay Island, the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) said yesterday. During a press briefing with the Development Budget Coordination Committee (DBCC), Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Ernesto Pernia said the closure of Boracay would lead to a reduction in gross domestic product (GDP) amounting to P980 million per quarter. Earlier, NEDA said the six-month closure of Boracay would decrease GDP growth by 0.1 percentage point.
