Sun Star Bacolod - - Business -

THE Pro­vin­cial Gov­ern­ment of Ne­gros Oc­ci­den­tal, through its Tourism Di­vi­sion, is gear­ing up for the up­dat­ing of its prov­ince’s tourism de­vel­op­ment plan.

Mem­bers of the Pro­vin­cial Tourism Plan­ning Com­mit­tee at­tended the lev­el­ling off ac­tiv­ity with rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Dot-west­ern Visayas at the Pro­vin­cial Capi­tol in Bacolod City on Tues­day.

Dur­ing which, the en­hanced tools for data as­sess­ment and re­source pro­fil­ing were rolled out by a group of con­sul­tants to­gether with Atty. Sed­frey Ca­baluna of DOT Re­gion 6.

Also, the plan­ning team met with Gov­er­nor Eu­ge­nio Jose Lac­son and Board Mem­bers Araceli So­mosa, Ernesto Bas­con and Jef­frey Tubola.

Cris­tine Mansinares, pro­vin­cial su­per­vis­ing tourism op­er­a­tions of­fi­cer, said the next four weeks will be al­lot­ted for con­sul­ta­tions with the rest of the plan­ning com­mit­tee mem­bers and rapid area as­sess­ment in key tourism de­vel­op­ment ar­eas in the prov­ince.

“The plan will mainly in­te­grate the in­fra­struc­ture needs lead­ing to ex­ist­ing, emerg­ing and po­ten­tial tourism sites,” Mansinares said.

This is a pre-req­ui­site as stated in a joint mem­o­ran­dum of the DOT and Depart­ment of Pub­lic Works and High­ways (DPWH) on Tourism Road In­fra­struc­ture Project (Trip), she added./epn
