Vice-Governor’s Speech: Local Tourism Icon Show and Pas’ungko Trade Fair

A beautiful morning everyone! Akong pagtahod sa atong Inahan sa Probinsya, Gov. Herminia Ramiro; sa akong mga kauban sa pagpanday ug mga balaod, ang atong mga SP Board Members; sa atong Provincial Administrator, Engr. Henry Ken Regalado; sa atong maabtik nga mga Department Heads; sa tanang empleyado sa atong Provincial Government of Misamis Occidental; sa atong mga honored guests; sublion ko, usa ka malipayong adlaw kanatong tanan!

God has been so faithful in giving us another brand new day. We started this day with a blast. Sayo ganihang buntag, nagsugod ta with a walk-for-a-cause nga gitambungan sa nagkalain-lain nga mga ahensya ug mga eskwelahan sa atong probinsya ug gisundan kini sa atong Pas’ungko Zumba ganihang alas 7:00. Sayo kaayo ta nagpasingot. Kinsa man nato diri ang nakatambong? Let us also not forget to thank our faithful organizers. Full-packed jud kaayo ang atong 86th Anniversary Celebration. Not only are we celebrating history, agriculture, beauty and culture but also health and equally important is tourism.

The National Tourism Act of 2009 (RA 9593) and Local Government Code of 1991 otherwise known as R.A. 7160 mandate LGU’s to develop and promote tourism for the general welfare in their respective jurisdictions. That is why this morning, let me warmly welcome you all to the opening of Local Tourism Icon Show and Pas’ungko Trade Fair.

Let us patronize Misamis Occidental. Tourism will not only promote our cultural heritage and exceptional sites, apan ang pinaka-importante niana nga ang turismo is a major economic driver that will aggressively create primary and secondary market effects in our province. Dili lamang ang mga investors mukita, apan apil usab ang atong mga LGU’s, ang atong agri-fishery sector, sa transport sector ug ang atong mga komunidad kon ma-fully develop na ang atong mga tourism sites.

Inig tan-aw nato unya sa atong mga tourism icons, perhaps it will bring most of us to one common realization – there is more to see in our own province that we have not yet explored.

As I close, let me leave you with this thought. Let us not be strangers in our own beautiful province. Please look at the person next to you and say “There is more to see! Let us patronize Misamis Occidental!”

Thank you and once again, welcome and good morning!
