According to Provincial Information Officer Maricel S. Cruz, the Media Tour aims to promote the eco-tourism sites as well as the best practices of the featured municipalities; uplift the awareness of the Bulakenyos regarding the most unexplored town in the province; encourage them to promote tourism as a major socio-economic activity that could generate employment among Bulakenyos, and spread the benefits of tourism to both the private and public sector.

For his part, Dr. Eliseo Dela Cruz, Provincial Tourism Officer, said that mediamen are one of the province’s partner in promoting the under-explored historical and tourist spots in Bulacan.

“Inaanyayahan ko po kayo na suportahan at tangkilikin ang mga ipinagmamalaki ng ating lalawigan dahil siguradong ang Bulacan, inyong babalik-balikan,” added Dr. Dela Cruz.

Meanwhile, DRT Municipal Tourism Officer Wilhelmina Lucas thanked the Provincial Government for choosing their municipality as this year’s venue of media tour and encouraged the media men to promote not only the tourist spots included in the tour’s itinerary but all of DRT’s attractions.
