Last January to June 2015, the Department of Tourism counted 2.6 million foreign tourist that translates to 111 Billion Pesos in terms of revenues from various tourism activities. This 2016, the government is targeting 6 million tourist.
With that high target in mind, the TPB urges everyone not only Globe and the government to participate and help in promoting our beautiful country.
"This year will be another competitive year for Philippine tourism, as TPB intends to remain aggressive in securing its rightful share of the tourist market. Because of our competitive fire, we are confident that more foreign travelers will choose to visit the Philippines over any other destination and more will be delighted to return to the country this year,” shares Domingo Ramon C. Enerio III, Chief Operating Officer of the Tourism Promotions Board.
He adds, “With our renewed partnership with Globe, we at TPB are excited for tourists and balikbayans to enjoy fast, affordable and reliable mobile connectivity through the Traveler SIM. It is one’s perfect companion to stay connected and updated in the Philippines are we are very happy that Globe is part of our commitment to make one’s stay in the country more fun and wonderful.”
They also announced the "Relive Wonderful PH contest", a video contest where international visitors like Foreigners and OFWs can submit a video with the theme of "Why they love the Philippines and what they want to do here again?".
The winner of the best video will get a FREE ticket to fly back in our country with a companion to a destination of their choice with allowance and accommodation courtesy of Globe Telecoms.
