PhilippinesPhilippines have been voted as one of the five most welcoming countries in the world, by a British Broadcasting Corporation Travel Report referred by Malacanang. To quote Ernesto Abella while briefing during a press conference, ‘’ the Philippines is among the five world’s most welcoming countries, according to the British Broadcasting Corporation. It cited the Philippines’ going-out culture, which gives expats plenty of opportunities to make friends.’’

 
To quote Lindsey Galloway, BBC Travel writer, ‘’ “in these five spots (Uganda, Costa Rica, Colombia, Oman, Philippines), expats will likely be greeted with a warm welcome, a helping hand and a friendly smile.” BBC is a British public service broadcaster based and headquartered in London and is also the world’s oldest national broadcasting organization.

 
According to a report presented by the Department of Tourism, almost six million tourists arrived last year in comparison to 5.3 million in 2015. To quote Abella, ‘’ we hope to boost visitor arrivals to 12 million by the end of the President’s term in 2022 through the private sector investments. Based on our National Tourism Development Plan of 2016-2022, the Duterte administration also aims to create up to 6.5 million jobs in the tourism sector — or the equivalent of 14.4 percent share of tourism jobs.’’
