“Our tourism plan for Zamboanga City is world-class and is not only about kite-flying or vinta-sailing!”
Thus how Zamboanguenos for the Transformation of Zamboanga(ZTZ) described its plan to convert Zamboanga City into a tourism zone in Mindanao and the whole country in general.
“Most of ZTZ’s 25-point agenda are geared towards tourism,” said ZTZ founder Romeo “Nonong” Jalosjos.
Jalosjos said selling Sta Cruz Island as the only “Pink Island” in the Philippines will surely lure foreign and domestic tourists.
The establishment of aqua sports in Zamboanga City will be the first in Mindanao and this will add tourism activities once Zamboanga City will be named as “Tourism Zone.”
Other world-class tourism plans mentioned in ZTZ’s 25-point agenda include the upgrading of the Zamboanga Golf and Country Club, reestablishment of the Zamboanga Plaza Hotel, parks and gardens in the east and west coasts of the city, rehabilitation of the Pasonanca Park and several others.
Jalosjos, who already announced that he will run for mayor in the city next year, said he is very confident that Zamboanga City can be a favorite tourist spot and as such will create job opportunities and improve the local economy.
“I did it in Dapitan City with Dakak Resort and Fantasyland that are now visited by foreign and domestic tourists. I can do it here in my birthplace of Zamboanga City,” Jalosjos stressed.
