MetadataShow full item record
The government’s rehabilitation efforts in Boracay are bearing fruit as the island is now back to its pristine condition and businesses are starting to prosper –a year after it was closed to tourists, the Department of Tourism (DOT) said. “Everything is moving according to plan,” said Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat in a text message to reporters. Puyat said that the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) “has done an excellent job” as the coliform bacteria level in the island’s waters is now “under safe standard levels” as compared to its high level of one million coliform bacteria prior to its shutdown.
