Around 120 Association of Southeast Asian Nations delegates will tour the countryside and visit two of Boholâ€™s world-renowned tourist attractions, the Chocolate Hills in Carmen and Tarsier Sanctuary in Corella on the last day of the ASEAN meetings on April 18-22.
This was announced by officials during the meeting of the ASEAN Summitâ€™s national and local organizing committees led by Governor Edgar Chatto on Monday at the Tagbilaran City Tourist Port.
The Department of Tourism (DOT) Central Visayas led by officer-in-charge Judy Gabato, Bohol Tourism Office and Bohol Federation of Travel and Tours Operators will be preparing tour arrangements for the delegates, said Chatto.
The DOT will also be putting up tarpaulins and billboards in strategic areas such as the seaport and airport in Tagbilaran City.
According to Engr. Francis Antonio Flores, head of the 1st District Engineering Office, national roads will also start to undergo clearing operations to rid them of trash and other eyesores such as improperly placed tarpaulins and billboards.
Flores assured Chatto that these will be completed early this month, particularly in routes which will be used by the delegates.
The asphalting operation along Bingag-Tinago in Dauis will be completed next week and excavation at the side of national roads have been suspended, said Flores. (Rey Tutas)
