Date: Aug 26, 2020, Wednesday

Time: 10:00 AM Philippine Standard Time

Speaker: Chen Reyes-Mencias, EnP, Tourism Planning Consultant, Bluewater Consultancy

As the Philippines grapples with the decision to save its battered economy, it is also faced with the fact that COVID-19 is still a serious threat to the lives of people. Although some experts argue that re-opening the economy too early may cause a second wave, which may force another lockdown, the National Government has given the go signal for some provinces to consider re-opening their tourism destinations to domestic tourists.

In this webinar, Environmental Planner Chen Reyes-Mencias provided local governments and communities some insights on how to re-open tourism destinations during these unprecedented times. She covered:

• Strategies for re-opening;
• Action plan that will balance economic recovery and public health;
• Public safety.
