BAGAC, Bataan – The formulation of a comprehensive tourism development plan for this historic Bataan town is highly significant in pursuing its status as one of the prime tourist destinations in Central Luzon.

Nick S. Ancheta, Bagac municipal administrator, explained the awesome necessity of having a long-range master plan for sustainable progress of flourishing travel and tourism industry conceptualized by Mayor Louise Gabriel Q. del Rosario would enhance further the agro-historical tourism aspect of the town which was one of the two-starting points of infamous Death March during the World War II.

Mayor del Rosario is on the verge of introducing and facilitating a doable progressive package using the Department of Tourism (DOT) guidebook for local government units which provide a viable framework and direction for the municipality.

The preparation of the program includes the identification and analysis of unique tourism travel and leisure resources and other attractions of the town’s historical and cultural sites which strongly determine the appropriate products and activities to be developed, packaged and promoted for the benefit of micro, small and medium entrepreneurs in the community.

According to Ancheta, Governor Albert Raymond S. Garcia has instructed the Metro Bataan Development Authority (MBDA) to undertake the exhaustive study for the construction of road lighting posts and closed circuit TV facilities along the 44 kilometers Mariveles-Bagac coastal roads and accessible network to beach resorts and other natural tourist spots of the town.

He added the tourism plan would incorporate the product and market analysis scenario that would guide the municipality in exploring the expansion of cottage industries and implementing marketing strategy which would develop locally manufactured merchandise for local and foreign consumption.
