The Philippines senator recommends restoration of the country’s historic sites

Restoration of the PhilippinesRestoration of the Philippines’ historical sites has been recommended by a senator, saying that it would bring in more tourists and, at the same time, provide more jobs.

In a press statement, Sen. Joel Villanueva expressed frustration on how the government is handling the conservation of the country’s cultural heritage, particularly Intramuros, which only has P50-million budget this year, a huge cut from the P443-million allocation last year.

“We believe that we can do more when it comes to preserving our cultural heritage by allocating enough budget to fund the restoration and reconstruction efforts of Intramuros in Manila; Barasoain Church in Malolos, Bulacan; Biak na Bato in San Miguel, Bulacan; and other historic heritage to attract more international and domestic tourists,” Villanueva said.

The senator, together with the Philippine Senate delegation, recently met with members of the French Senate to discuss how the two nations can work together to promote sustainable tourism policies.

Villanueva said he believed that, if the Philippines followed the tourism development policies of France and develop better infrastructure in the country’s tourism destinations, the Philippines can also reach its maximum tourist arrivals, which will open more employment opportunities in the tourism industry.
