LUNGSOD NG NAGA, Mayo 18 (PIA)—Turismo sa Camarines Sur ang paksang nangibabaw sa Kapihan sa Metro Naga Chamber na ginanap kahapon sa Sogo Hotel Naga.  

Naging panauhin sina Naga City Arts,Culture and Tourism Officer Alec Francis Santos, Ateneo De Naga University-Tourism Department chairperson Kristine Lizardo, Camarines Sur Tourism Council Chairperson Efren Daniel De Leon at Kapihan sa Metro Naga Chamber chairperson Leanne Zuniga Montemayor.

 

Tampok sa talakayan ang mga mungkahi ng mga panauhin kung paano lalong mapaunlad ang turismo sa buong Camarines Sur at Naga City.

 

Ayon kay Santos, ang turismo ay hindi lamang trabaho ng gobyerno kundi kasama na ang pribadong sektor sa paghahanap ng tamang pag-uugnayan.

 

“Kasi trabaho ng pamahalaan na siguruhin na andyan ang pangunahing pasilidad, serbisyo at seguridad ng mga bisita samantalang trabaho naman ng pribadong sektor ang pagtaguyod at pagbibigay ng tamang serbisyo at produkto sa mga turista,” ani Santos.

 

Binigyang-diin ni Santos na ang turismo ay negosyo.

 

“Makikinabang dito ang private sector na siyang dapat manguna sa pagsulong ng turismo,” ani Santos. “Ang hamon dito ay kung paano makahanap ng suporta sa lahat na stakeholders ng turismo.”

 

Inihayag naman ni Lizardo na ang turismo sa hanay ng akademya ay  “managerial.”

 

Kabilang aniya sa maraming industriya na pag-pipilian ang mga estudyante ang hotel, airline, resorts, at souvenirs.

 

Sa kanyang bahagi,  iginiit ni De Leon na “kapag may turista ay may trabaho, may kita at ginhawa.”

 

“Kasi pagbisita sa lugar ang turista ay may dalang pera na hindi na iuuwi sa kanila. Ibabayad yan sa hotel, restaurant, serbisyo, pamasahe, pambili ng pasalubong at iba pang gastusin sa paglalakbay ma makikinabang ang mga pribadong sektor.”.

 

Batay sa record ng regional office ng Department of Tourism, halos 1.3 milyong turista ang naitala sa Lungsod ng Naga noong 2016 at 900,000 naman sa Camarines Sur.

 

Ang kapihan ay sama-samang itinaguyod ng Metro Naga Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MNCCI), Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas (KBP) Camarines Sur Chapter at Philippine Information Agency (PIA)-Camarines Sur. (EAD/DAbad/PIA5/Camarines Sur)
