Valte said that the debates and intrigues triggered by this new slogan “attest that it is more fun in the Philippines.”
“If you check the reactions on line, everybody is getting on board, everyone is having fun with the slogan,” Valte said.
“Ang dami nang lumalabas so it seems the people are on board and are staunchly behind the DOT if we look at the reactions online, she added saying, “it is being widely accepted by our people.”
She expressed confidence that this new campaign of the DOT will succeed to bring in the volume of tourist arrivals this year.
“The measure of how effective the slogan is will be, in the numbers, in the figures, in the number of tourist arrivals that the country will have,” Valte said.
“We will be able to measure by the number of tourist arrivals na madadala nitong “Its more fun in the Philippines” campaign,” she added.
