Perks for Tourism-Related Businesses in Makati Bared


Makati Mayor Jejomar C. Binay announced the city governments plan to reward with numerous benefits tourism-related establishments in the city that will join as members of the Makati Tourism Foundation.

The Makati Tourism Foundation, a joint public-private sector group formed in 2000 to foster mutual cooperation among key players in the tourism industry and concerned city government agencies, is one of the major institutions at the forefront of the ongoing campaign to promote Makati as the countrys urban tourism capital.

To stimulate the growth of tourism in the city, which will create jobs, bring in the foreign currency, and lead in reversing the economic downtrend that we face as a nation, the city government is prepared to offer a package of benefits to foundation members, Binay said during the formal launch of the Makati Tourism Week.

Binay said that an ID card will be given to Foundation members that will entitle them to special privileges, such as priority assistance on local government concerns, including Police, Fire, Health Department matters, and license and permit facilitation.

The mayor added that members would also be entitled to protection from illegal solicitations; a business tax discount on their incremental revenues based on the previous years figures; discounts from co-members; discounts on rates to foundation- and member-sponsored seminars and training; and possibly free parking on city-owned parking facilities.

Binay said that members who pass a strict standards test will be entitled to a special deal attesting to the establishments adherence to and practice of the highest standards of health, fire safety and other requirements, to be posted in a conspicuous area within the establishment to attract more patrons.
