In his final term, first district Congressman Rene Relampagos intends to focus on the development of the tourism industry in an effort to generate more jobs.
During his tenure as Bohol Governor, Relampagos implemented projects to turn the province into an eco-cultural destination and it was able to create employment opportunities for Boholanos as the move drew businesses, he said during the inauguration and oath-taking ceremony of newly elected provincial officials yesterday.
The legislator acknowledged tourism as the answer to unemployment in Bohol, particularly as the province is now among the most known travel destinations in the country and has started to be recognized abroad.
Meanwhile, second district Congressman Aristotle Aumentado said that officials should make good on their election promises.
He also noted that he would focus on poverty alleviation and urged other officials in the district to do the same.
For his part, third district Congressman Arthur Yap thanked supporters for handing him a landslide victory against the last elections.
The last-termer congressman vowed to implement projects that would positively impact constituents in the district which has 19 towns. (with reports from Allen Doydora)Â
