Unabia challenges gov’t leaders to help boost tourism in Misor

by Gerry Lee Gorit

MISAMIS ORIENTAL – Governor Peter “Sr. Pedro” M. Unabia challenged all government leaders in the province to help him boost tourism in the province in order to see a big turn around of the industry in the province.

He lamented that the province has no tourism destination yet that is fully developed and has become an attraction in Northern Mindanao or even nationwide-scale.

“Right now we have no tourist destination yet that is well-developed and gives the province a potential revenue and invites people all over the country or even foreign visits,” the governor said.

For the tourism industry to prosper in the province, Unabia said, the development of the Laguindingan Airport, the conversion of Mindanao International Container Port, and the upcoming opening of a train station from Villanueva to Laguindingan, will help boost tourism industry in the province.

“Apologies kung medyo lahi ang akong standard, pero pagka karon wala pa tay tourism destination na atong ipasigardo dinhi sa probinsya,” Unabia pointed out.

The governor said among the potential tourist potential destinations in the development of Initao seas, the Lasang, the Opol shores, and all other potential sites in the province. 


The governor also challenged the government to prepare for the massive development of hotels and restaurants in the province. He said they would train chefs and front desks and all other things if needed, to make the hotels and restaurants thrive in the province. 

Unabia told administrator John Venice Ladaga to schedule seminars outside of Cagayan de Oro so that their hotels in the province will also earn and help the economic activity thrive as well.


The Province of Misamis Oriental proudly participated in the 126th Philippine Independence Day Parade in New York City, marking a significant milestone in our cultural and economic endeavors. The participation aligns seamlessly with Governor Peter “Sr. Pedro” M. Unabia’s forward-thinking agenda on Goal-Oriented Tourism Development, which seeks to elevate Misamis Oriental’s profile on the global stage. 

As the featured festival in this grand event, the Kuyamis Festival was brilliantly stowcased by nearly 80 dedicated delegates from Claveria, Magsaysay, Medina, and Gingoog City who flew from Misamis Oriental to the bustling streets of New York. ###
