Kapag may investors, may trabaho.

Kapag may trabaho, may pagkain,” Majority Floor Leader Chua said in a statement.In addition, Councilor Fugoso also encouraged not only her fellow councilors but also the general public to support the tourism development plan.“Sana po ay suportahan natin itong Tourism Plan, nakita naman natin na maganda ang ginagawa ng DTCAM at ang nangyayari sa ating lungsod. Nagpapasalamat ako sa DTCAM na walang sawa na nagsusulong ng mga plano para sa pagsasaayos ng ating lungsod,” Councilor Fugoso said.Likewise, the Manila City Council also incorporated the tourism and cultural heritage zones in line with the ongoing efforts to update the Comprehensive Land Use Plan which will be enacted through a zoning ordinance.
