MOU to promote Province as Eco-Tourism hub inked

The provincial government of Capiz and the Filamer Christian University (FCU) recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to promote the province as an eco-tourism hub.

Provincial Board member Jonathan Besa said the agreement was signed on during the 5th Provincial Convention of Hotel and Restaurant Management and Tourism (HRMT) Teachers and Students at the FCU on Friday in line with the Provincial Tourism Week celebration.

Under the MOU, the FCU shall assist the provincial government in implementing the Provincial Tourism and Cultural Development Plan (PTCAP) by providing human resource and technical and logistic support.

On the other hand, the provincial government will help the FCU’s College of HRMT in enhancing academic standards by involving teachers and students in implementing tourism programs.

The MOU also intends to enhance the capacity and capability of the province’s human resources, prepare community-based tourism attractions or destinations based on standards set by the Department of Tourism, and implement programs and projects of the PTCAP.

Board Member Besa, chair of the Provincial Board’s Committee on Tourism, said the celebration is expected to unveil the tourism potentials of Capiz.

Meanwhile, a forum on tourism and biodiversity will be held at the Hall of Governors in the Provincial Capitol.

Prof. Felipe de Leon and Dr. Rodel Subade from the University of the Philippines will speak on Promoting Biodiversity through Cultural Diversity and the Importance of Biodiversity in Tourism Development, respectively.

A cultural performance called “Pahigbuk” in front of the Provincial Capitol will culminate the week-long event.
