DOT, JIB Work Together to Improve Promotion of Tourism in the City.

The Department of Tourism (DOT) Region XI and the Joji Ilagan Career Center signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) on December 14 to boost the promotion of tourism in Davao City.

The agreement was signed during the Christmas Party of DOT XI at the Royal Mandaya Hotel.

Under the MOA, JIB Travel and Tourism Students will be deployed at the Arrival Reception Desk of the Davao International Airport.

 According to Joji Ilagan Bian, chair of JIB Schools, she volunteered the services of her school to DOT Regional Director Art Boncato since she saw the critical need to put in regular personnel for information and promotion desk in the airport.

"Tourists would normally look for this facility the moment they arrive in any airport and it is very disappointing to see an empty Tourist Arrival Info Center", Bian said.

Bian said as of today there is no regular manpower assigned in the Arrival Reception Desk and so no one is at hand to entertain inquiries or provide information especially to tourists.

She added that she and Boncato  agreed to evaluate the project regularly so that improvements can immediately be made.

"This agreement has no cost at all to the government", Bian said.

Bian said the students will also undergo training in communication and in handling inquiries of the arriving passengers in the airport from concerns regarding available hotels, restaurants, car rentals to tourist spots or destinations that they can visit while in the city.

She said they started training their students since December 10 last year and will start deploying their students on January 10.

Bian said they are currently training 50 students and will deploy them by batch of 10 from 6 am to 6 pm.  ---Maya M. Padillo--- (Mindanao Daily Mirror)
