EDITORIAL: I love Pangasinan

October 3, 2011 at 6:26 am Leave a comment

Governor Amado T. Espino Jr said that “If we say we love Pangasinan, we should then make it lovable.”
We believe that there is true love when there is peace among the people especially among the leaders of the province.
To make Pangasinan lovable, the provincial government launched the “I love Pangasinan” campaign at the opening of the Tourism Month celebration.
With the competitiveness of stakeholders, the concept of tourism has evolved to become more activity-based, rather than destination-based.
Tourists, whether domestic or international, have also become quite discriminating and discerning, and, when traveling, look out for the so-called five As, which are access, accommodation, attraction, activities, and amenities.
For starters, the Hundred Islands National Park of Alaminos City which is in Pangasinan, is one of the tourist spots accredited internationally.
Will the provincial tourism office make an extra effort in teaming up with Mayor Hernani Branganza in promoting the Hundred Islands?
Espino is encouraging all 44 towns and cities to effect cleanliness and be more tourist oriented because tourism will bring jobs and business opportunities for the local negosyantes.
Is the provincial tourism office ready to promote the Bangrin Mangrove Forest as a tourism destination in Bani where the mayor is Marcelo Navarro Jr. which is also in Pangasinan?
The Municipal Government of Bani let by its mayor Marcelo Navarro Jr. is a recent awardee in the 2011 Para Del Mar Award which gives recognition to outstanding management practices of marine protected areas all over the Philippines.
We love to see the “I Love Pangasinan” campaign succeed with our Governor joining hands with Alaminos City Mayor Nani Branganza in promoting the Hundred Islands National Park and with Mayor Navarro in promoting the tourist spots in Bani and mayors in other tourist areas in Pangasinan.

Perhaps this is the chance where politics can be sidelined in the effort to promote tourism in Pangasinan.

The I Love Pangasinan campaign will not only make tourism the biggest job-generating industry today but will also make friends out of political enemies.
