SBMA: Vaccination plus strict protocols will breathe new life to Subic tourism
The head of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) expressed confidence that Subic Freeport’s tourism industry would be revived through the vaccination rollout and strict enforcement of health and safety guidelines.
According to a Sun Star Pampanga report, SBMA chair and administrator Wilma Eisma said the expanded vaccination program and adherence to health safety protocols will help Subic’s tourism industry to recover early despite the pandemic.
Eisma made the statement during the opening of the Philippine Travel Exchange (Phitex) 2021 opening held at the Acea Subic Beach Resort.
“We have been strictly implementing minimum health and safety protocols everywhere in the free port, including wearing of face mask and face shield, practicing social distancing, sanitizing hands every time, and staying home and not going out unless necessary,” she was quoted as saying.
“These have kept our Covid-19 cases low,” Eisma said.
“We are now focused on having our economic frontliners vaccinated so breadwinners can protect themselves and their loved ones from Covid-19. So we can revive our economy,” she added.
