Mayor Honey Lacuna enjoined the support of all residents and employees in boosting the tourism industry in the city of Manila by not being contented with it being just a ‘stopover’.

The lady mayor made the call as she shared that recently, she witnessed the arrival of the Silver Spirit, the first cruise ship that docked in the city after pandemic first hit two and a half years ago.

“Ito ay isang senyales na tunay na ngang bukas ang bansa para tanggapin ang lahat ng nais dumalaw at makitang muli ang kagandahan ng ating bansa,” she said.

Lacuna added that the said event spells a big help in boosting tourism in the country and even in Manila.

“Sinisikap natin na ang Maynila di lang maging stopover, na dadating lang ang turista tapos pupunta na sa ibang lugar, kungdi magtagal naman sana sila dito sa ating lungsod at madalaw ang magagandang lugar dito,” Lacuna stressed.

One of the important ways to make Manila inviting, she said, is to keep the city clean, including its nooks and crannies.

Speaking of this, Lacuna reiterated her repeated calls to observe cleanliness inside and outside the home.

It will be recalled that in her first day in office as city mayor, Lacuna issued an Executive Order designating every Friday of the week as ‘Cleanup Day’ in city government offices and barangays.

Just the same, she constantly urges Manilans to make everyday a ‘Cleanup Day’ and to ensure that their surroundings or immediate vicinities are clean at all times.
