The installation of two modular docking facilities in San Vicente town is expected to boost the local tourism industry, municipal administrator James Inawasan told Palawan News.
Inawasan said the modular docks will be installed in Barangay Port Barton and the town center for residents and tourists to easily access the waters.
“Ang gagawin natin sa Port Barton, sa ngayon nakikita natin na ang mga bangka ay nakakalat lang so ang gagawin natin maglalagay tayo ng modular docking facility and maglalagay tayo ng tourist information center and Coast Guard personnel sa area para ‘yong beach natin organisado na, malinis na,” Inawasan said.
He said the budget for the two eco-friendly docking facilities is P15 million funded by the national government through the Tourism Infrastructure Enterprise Zone Authority (TIEZA).
Aside from the beach accessibility project, San Vicente has also implemented the construction of a P6-million tourism information and action center in Barangay New Agutaya, which will soon be completed, Inawasan said.
He said that the center will serve as a one-stop-shop where tourists can get information about San Vicente and where they want to go and visit.
TIEZA is an attached agency of the Department of Tourism (DOT), which declared San Vicente as a flagship Tourism Enterprise Zone (TEZ).
One of the priorities for tourism development is the 833-hectare Long Beach also located in the town and identified as Cluster 1 that will be managed by the San Vicente Tourism Management Committee (SVTMC).
