Cantanduanes Rep. Hector Sanchez has prodded the Department of Tourism to promote the province, saying that the island has so much to offer when it comes to natural wonders.

During the recent budget hearing of the DOT, Sanchez called out the agency for not featuring Catanduanes on its website.

“That is a grave injustice to the province of Catanduanes because there is so much more to see and do in my province,” the lawmaker said.

According to the solon, only the Puraran Surfing has been featured on the philippines.travel website of the tourism department.

“Maliban sa dive sites, marami rin ng tourist venues at delicacies ang kayang mai-offer ng Catanduanes sa mga turista, kailangan lamang nito ng sapat na suporta at promosyon,” he said.

“So, I really hope that DOT rectify the error or injustice done to Catanduanes,”

He asked the DOT to conduct tourism mapping in order to encourage tourists to visit Catanduanes.

DOT Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat meanwhile apologized to the lawmaker and assured that she will make up to the people of Catanduanes.
