Along with the tourism growth in Western Visayas is also the development of businesses in the island of Boracay.
However, some of the business establishments in the island are now facing problems in relation to the road easement/ set back implemented by the LGU Malay.
In this regard, Department of Tourism (DOT) advises the establishment owners and is hoping that they would comply the said ordinance for the continuous development of the island and its establishments as well.
DOT Boracay Sub-Office Team Leader Leo Kristoffer Velete said that, “the development of Boracay will also be the development of different business here.”
Meanwhile, DOT apparently accentuates its support to the different programs of the local government unit.
It can be recalled that the implementation of Municipal Ordinance No. 2000-131 of Malay requires six- (6) meter set back from the center or middle of the road in any temporary or permanent structures.
