Government’s rehabilitation efforts for this key Philippine destination, known as among the best beaches in the world, is on track. That was the statement of Undersecretary for Tourism Regulation, Coordination and Resource Generation Arturo P. Boncato Jr. at a news briefing during the turnover of emergency equipment and medical supplies to the island on Thursday at the Movenpick Resort & Spa. “The Boracay Inter-Agency Task Force has a life of two years given the executive order,” he said. “…[And] our inter-agency task has committed to accomplish certain milestones within that two-year period. Phase 2 of the road network construction, coming from Seawind (in Station 1) to Barangay Yapak to where we are (Movenpick) it’s supposed to be completed by the end of the validity of the task force (April 26, 2020). And based on the report of our partner, the DPWH (Department of Public Works And Highways), we are on track.”
