“We believe in one mission and vision for the website. We said that, we believe that the job of marketing the Philippines is not confined through the efforts of the Department of Tourism and the LGU, it is the job of every Filipino,” said ABS-CBN Chief Digital Officer Donald Lim in his opening remarks.
During the awards night, Chief Digital Officer Donald Lim encourages travelers, tourism officials, and local government units to unite as one in the efforts to market the Philippines to the world.
He adds, “As the world becomes more global, we have to hold to our share in marketing the Philippines. Right now, more than ever, we have to make sure that given the growth and rise of travel tourism, of economies around the world, it’s really our challenge to market the Philippines.”
As he shared the Choose Philippines manifesto that is held authentic since its was established 5 year ago, he ends his speech with, “Ang laki ng dependency ng success ng isang bansa sa tourism eh (The success of a country lies dependent on its tourism). So we really hope that all of you help us in this endeavor.”
