In preparation for the reopening of the country’s borders, the Department of Tourism (DOT) has launched a new international program, which aims to attract foreign tourists to visit destinations in the Philippines.

According to DOT Assistant Secretary for Branding and Marketing Communications Howard Lance Uyking, the #MoreFunAwaits initiative has already been launched and is now being broadcast on numerous international channels including CNN International, the BBC, CNBC, and National Geographic.

“This is a followup to our #WakeUpInThePhilippines campaign last year and will be airing until the country reopens,” Uyking told Business Mirror in an exclusive interview.

“Our foreign offices need a campaign to help with their promotions and partnerships with international sellers,” he added.

The government agency wants to reach at least 37 million viewers through the 30-second international ad campaign, Uyking shared.

Apart from this, DOT’s ‘Have a Safe Trip’ campaign is also being circulated on Philippine televisions. He mentions that it will come in full force next month when more destinations are open.
