DOT Launches the Philippines’ Tourism Decade

Posted on March 2, 2020

Tourism goes beyond glamorous views and delicious food. It’s also about the lives of people who make travels more fun in the Philippines.

The Tourism Decade is a celebration of the tourism industry’s achievements, ten years since Republic Act 9593 was signed into law. Authored by Senator Richard Gordon together with Congressman Edgar Chatto, RA9593 declared tourism to be an indispensable element of the national economy, and an industry of national interest and importance.

Better known as The Tourism Act of 2009, the law highlights the tourism sector’s transformative power in nation building as it becomes a driving force of empowerment among Filipinos.
