Board Member Tony Roman announced that the Provincial Board passed the Indigenous Heritage and Tourism Promotion Ordinance of Bataan which he principally authored.

Roman said with the legislation, the diverse indigenous communities with rich cultural heritages such as the Ambala and Magbukon Aeta communities in the province can now be promoted for tourism. “There exists an opportunity to promote sustainable tourism that honors and preserves this indigenous culture”, he said. He explained the genuine participation and involvement of these indigenous communities in the tourism industry will not only empower their cultural identity, but will also generate economic opportunities for them. He also said indigenous tourism preserves and revitalizes cultures, enabling the transmission of traditional knowledge and practices to future generations.

Board Member Popoy Del Rosario, chairman of Sangguniang Panlalawigan Committee on Tourism, Indigenous People Bataan Representative and ex officio Board Member Sonny Magay, and Roman jointly authored and sponsored the ordinance.
