To proactively provide information to tourists planning to visit the beautiful places in Palawan, the Bantay Turista Program was launched Thursday, December 10 at the Capitol.
The program was borne due to some incidents in the previous months which put the province in bad light. But with enough prior information about the place these incidents would have been avoided.
The information that the program would want to focus on is about the weather condition, the possible dangers in the place, the culture of Palaweños and environmental protection.
Roselee Baluyot Buenconsejo, in-charge of the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office (PDRRMO) media training group said that they are aiming to involve the tourists to plant at least one seedling of tree before leaving Palawan.
The program is under the supervision of PDRRMO in partnership with Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAG-ASA), Coast Guard, Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP), and Philippine Ports Authority (PPA).
