The government is bent on sustaining the gains of the six-month environmental rehabilitation of Boracay as more tourists are returning to the resort island in Malay, Aklan province, according to Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat. “Sustainable tourism” will remain a priority after Boracay was reopened to tourists in October last year, she said. According to the United Nations World Tourism Organization, tourism is sustainable when it “takes full account of its current and future economic, social and environmental impacts, addressing the needs of visitors, the industry, the environment and host communities.”
