MANILA -- The new tourism campaign for ASEAN, ‘ASEAN for ASEAN' was revealed yesterday with the common goal to promote travel within the region but at the same time featuring nine different themes.
Under the campaign, each ASEAN member national tourism organization (NTO) has taken on a specific theme to fan integral regional tourism through 2016 and generate awareness of the ASEAN tourism brand.
Tourism in Brunei Darussalam will focus on ASEAN community-based tourism, Cambodia and Myanmar share the same focus to promote ASEAN culture and heritage and Indonesia will endorse ASEAN spa and wellness.
Grievances aired at DAR
After four days of picket-protests at the Department of Agrarian Reform office, the farmers of southern Negros were finally heard yesterday.
Leaders of Kilusang Magbubukid ng Pilipinas and National Federation of Sugar Workers in Negros Occidental had a dialog with Domingo Gatmaitan, Hinigaran Municipal Agrarian Reform Officer, to air their concerns over the implementation of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program.
“Although Provincial Agrarian Reform Officer LucreciaTaberna did not face us, it is good that we voiced the plight of the farmers in Southern Negros,” Danny Tabura, Anakpawis chair, said.
CEB receives Airbus A320
Cebu Pacific received its first Airbus A320 aircraft with the new livery yesterday that was delivered brand-new from the Airbus factory in Toulouse, France, a CEB press release said.
Equipped with fuel-saving wingtip devices called Sharklets, the Airbus A320 is coated with CEB's new logo which was first rolled out in June 2015. The theme builds on the Philippines' natural canvas as inspiration, and showcases shades of the country's land, sea, sky, and sun.
CEB is also set to accept delivery of another brand-new Airbus A320 with the revamped livery, before the end of January. With these two deliveries, CEB will be operating 8 Airbus A319, 35 Airbus A320, 6 Airbus A330, and 8 ATR 72-500 aircraft. CEB's fleet is one of the youngest in the world, with an average age of 4.69 years, the press release said.
