The Tourism Congress of the Philippines

The Tourism Congress of the Philippines held its biennial elections, and Aileen Clemente was reelected as Executive Vice-President of the Organization. Mark Evidente, on the other hand, was reappointed as counsel and policy adviser. Both our principals thus serve on the authoritative umbrella organization in the Philippine tourism industry.

The Tourism Congress was mandated by the Tourism Act of 2009 (Republic Act No. 9593) to create a broad-based, cross-sectoral organization to represent the tourism industry, and work as a partner with the Department of Tourism in the making and implementing policies, plans and programs. It also nominates the private sector representatives to the governing boards of three attached agencies to the DOT, namely, the Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority, the Tourism Promotions Board, and Duty Free Philippines Corporation.

Rosanna T. Fores, President, from Hijo Resources
