thanks for your concern and care! it would be awesome, but it's unnecessary since some reports indicate that Ilocos has a fairly high literacy rate alam naman siguro ng mga Ilocano ang ibig sabihin ng "TERMINAL FEE"

Subic bay stakes claim to mice market


A former medical equipment storage warehouse converted into a convention and exhibition centre in a mere six months is playing a critical role in helping this former US military base become a major player in the Philippines' travel and tourism promotion efforts.

The centre last week played host to more than 350 delegates at MICECon 2010, the Philippines' annual caucus of meeting, incentivs, convention and exhibition organisers, and will soon host 6,000 Filipino accountants for their annual convention.

"Last year more than 100 events were hosted with 60,000 participants. It's a good start for us. We are not yet a major destination but I believe we can start small and slowly expand," said Armand Arreza, the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) administrator.

Mr Arreza said convention delegates are pouring an estimated US$10-12 million into the local economy in direct expenditure on hotels, food, shopping and visiting attractions.

The convention centre itself used to be the warehouse of a Taiwanese company that made medical equipment and clothes.

According to Mr Arreza, the SBMA had bid a year earlier to host the 2007 Philippines' annual advertising congress. Nine months before the event, it had no convention centre and was planning to erect a large makeshift tent. But six months before the advertising congress, the Taiwanese company went bankrupt and offered the warehouse for sale. That proved to be a stroke of luck; the warehouse was fixed up well enough to host the congress.

Since then, it has undergone another $8 million worth of refurbishments, helping to promote the area as a viable Mice destination. The ad congress returned last year and the SBMA is pitching to bring it back again in 2011.

Already well equipped with an international airport that attracts healthy low-cost and charter airline traffic, Subic Bay now has 2,000 hotel rooms with another 1,000 due over the next three years. A new expressway has put it within a smooth two-hour drive from Manila.

"The story of Subic Bay continues to evolve," Mr Arreza said. "We were not even on the radar screen but now, top executives of major multinationals are coming here for conventions and planning major investments of their own in warehouses and logistics centres. This former warehouse has paid remarkable dividends."

Tourism Secretary Joseph "Ace" Durano, said he hoped MICECon would help the country's convention sector gain the focus it needs to start attracting business from around Asia-Pacific.

He said budgetary constraints had forced the Department of Tourism to "resist the temptation to try to do everything and then end up doing nothing. ... We disciplined ourselves and decided to focus our efforts on specific markets, and then develop the products suited to those markets."

Indeed, the Philippines' tourism industry fared well last year, one of the few destinations to record growth in both domestic and international visitors.

According to Tourism Undersecretary Oscar Palabyap, international arrivals rose from 1.09 million in 2008 to 1.12 million in 2009. The top markets were South Korea (19.89%), followed by Japan (12.19%), the US (11.55%), Europe (10.70%) and China (6.93%).

Developing air access is a key strategy. In the past year, charter flights have emerged between Shanghai, Hangzhou and Guangzhou direct to Kalibo and Cebu by Shanghai Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Air China and Philippine Airlines. China Airlines also links Taipei and Kaohsiung to Kalibo and Laoag. New air services agreements have also been signed with 13 other countries including Thailand.

Mr Palabyap said new Tourism Enterprise Zones were also attracting investments. Roughly $773 million worth of tourism projects were endorsed in 2009, with 15,567 projected jobs. Of the total, $617 million went into the TEZs, $80.6 million to hotels, $39.8 million in spas and $23.4 million in resorts.

As well, he said, the new Tourism Act would clearly delineate the responsibilities of state agencies and improve co-operation with the private sector in formulating marketing and development plans.

January air passenger volume up 4.8 percent


The Macau International Airport (MIA) reported a 4.8 percent growth in the passenger volume in January this year, and also expected increased air traffic during the upcoming Lunar New Year holidays.
According to the MIA press release, Macau’s tourism industry has started to see “signs of recover after the prolonged effects” of the global financial crisis occurred more than a year ago.
Reportedly airlines will add several tens of extra flights to mainland Chinese during the Chinese New Year holidays to meet the travel demand.
The additional flights will fly to popular destinations such as mainland China, Taiwan, Thailand and Japan, the MIA said.
The volume of passengers stood at 358,902 in January at the MIA, rose by 4.8 percent compared with the same period of 2009.
The airport attributed the improvement to the “gradual recovery in the global economy”, particularly in the economy of China which in turn stimulated Macaus tourism industry.
In addition, the Valentines Day falls on the Lunar New Year’s Day on February 14, which “greatly increases the travel intention of Macau citizens”.
The MIA said it estimated that the total passenger volume of this year’s Chinese New Year holidays will surmount that of the same period in 2009.
On the other hand, in a bid to accelerate the recovery paces of Macau’s aviation industry, the MIA has revised the incentive policy of developing new routes for the airlines, which have been approved by the Civil Aviation Authority of Macau (AACM).
The changes aimed to “strengthen and assist the airlines to expand new routes and markets while reducing the costs of operation at the same time”, the press statement pointed out.
In 2009, the MIA helped several airlines to restart services to Malaysia, Thailand and the mainland that were previously suspended, and also helped implement new routes to Penang, Laoag City, Nanning, Melbourne and Sapporo.
After the launch of Air China code sharing with Air Macau for the new route between Macau and Wuhan the capital of Hubei province on January 15, Viva Macau will launch three flights to Hanoi in Vietnam weekly starting February 13.
“With the continuous recovery of the global economy and further development of Macau’s tourism industry”, the MIA said it is confident that more foreign airlines will begin launching new air services and routes to Macau in order to fulfill the demand of the market.

LAO looks really nice, it has this character that's filipino with a castillian spanish flair in it. It's just me, I don't know about others.

This thread is always too quiet? Are there no developments in this area? Not even new air service from a new airline company? Love some of the pics already here, I wish there are more to come.
