Albay Rep. Fernando Cabredo supports bill to declare Jovellar an ecotourism zone
Albay Rep. Fernando Cabredo would like the municipality of Jovellar to be declared an ecotourism zone.
In a Facebook post, Cabredo declared his support for the bill proposing this idea.
He said Jovellar’s natural heritage of caves, waterfalls, hills and mountains could be developed into tourism spots.
Jovellar is also home to the Quitinday Falls and the scenic Quipia River that runs all the way to Donsol.
If these areas are developed into tourist spots, Jovellar would attract more investments and generate employment and business opportunities, he said.
He is hoping that the measure would also get the support of the Senate and the President.
Greater opportunities could open up for Jovellar!
“At the Committee on Rules presided by Majority Floor Leader Mannix Dalipe, prior to 2nd and 3rd reading in plenary of House Bill No. 6016 which seeks to declare the Municipality of Jovellar in the Province of Albay as an ecotourism zone.
Jovellar has a rich natural heritage of caves, waterfalls, hills and mountains that all have tremendous tourism potential. In Jovellar can be found, among others, the Quitinday Falls, caves and underground rivers, and the scenic Quipia River that runs all the way to Donsol, a municipality in Sorsogon where the world-famous butandings are found.
I believe that developing Jovellar into a tourism haven will generate investment, employment and business opportunities that will uplift the living conditions of the residents.
This is a re-filed bill and was already approved by the 18th Congress. I am looking forward for its consideration in the Senate and approval by the President into a Republic Act,” Cabredo posted.
