A resolution is being processed at the Town Council of Malay to formally adopt businessmen Lucio Tan and Ramon Ang.
While some members of the Town Council of Malay questioned whether the donations and assistance from the two businessmen were enough grounds for adoption, no resistance to the resolution was received from the Town Council.
Allegedly, the resolution is under the request of the Mayor of Malay, which is a means of the Local Government Unit (LGU) to acknowledge the environmental programs for Boracay and donations to Boracay from the two.
According to the Town Council, the two businessmen made huge contribution to the Boracay Beach Management Program (BBMP), including the planting of mangroves at Sitio Lugutan, in the Village of Manoc-Manoc.
In addition, since there are also businessmen in Boracay that support the programs of the LGU aside from the two, the Town Council saw nothing wrong for Malay to adopt Tan and Ang.
