Triple C tourism cluster faces challenges head-on

The Triple C tourism development area in Bicol needs to confront challenges ranging from limited market access to lack to industry manpower capabilities to improve its competitiveness, according to local tourism authorities.

Department of Tourism (DOT) Regional Director Maria Ong-Ravanilla on Monday said that these obstacles were identified during the recent assessment and validation activities conducted by the Bicol Regional Tourism Council (BRTC).

Said council has been preparing a development strategy that would be included in the Tourism Development Plan (TDP) for 2015–2020.

Ravanilla explained that local tourism authorities are looking at the improvement of market access, connectivity, destination infrastructure and enhancement of tourism institutional, governance and industry manpower capabilities as some strategies to help address the obstacles.

Composed of Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, and Catanduanes, the Triple C cluster was formed by the Bicol Regional Tourism Council last September.

The governors of said provinces entered into a memorandum of agreement that ensures their commitment to address the challenges to the tourism development plan.

Working with the provincial governments are the DOT Regional office, the National Economic Development Authority (NEDA), Department of Budget and Management (DBM), Department of Agriculture (DA), the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Department of Science and Technology, Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and Philippine National Police (PNP).


Some of the tourist attractions in the Triple C cluster include the Calaguas Islands, Caramoan Peninsula, Mt. Bagacay, and Mampurog River, among others. –With report from Danny Calleja, PNA
