“We thank you for showing the Universe through your words and actions that indeed it is more fun in the Philippines! And, for that matter, we can make it more fun forever,” said Sec. Puyat in leading hundreds of employees in welcoming Ms. Gray at the DOT offices Tuesday afternoon.
Weeks prior to the Miss Universe 2018 competition, Ms. Gray took the initiative to produce a series of videos featuring various tourist destinations in the country, including Intramuros, Albay, Leyte and Cotabato.
“Catriona’s strong support for the DOT’s efforts along the lines of environmental and socio-cultural preservation will most certainly help us promote the culture of sustainable development.”
Ms. Gray said she plans to visit all the country’s tourist destinations. She agreed to meet again with DOT officials to discuss a more defined role in the refreshed branding campaign with emphasis on sustainable tourism development.
