SEVERAL lawmakers on Wednesday hit the new slogan of the Department of Tourism
(DOT), advising the agency to drop it and tap Sarangani Congressman Manny Pacquiao as
its endorser to better promote the Philippines.
Zambales Representative Mitos Magsaysay said Pacquiao is the only Filipino personality
who is known globally. He believed that Pacquiao can do “a good job of selling the country”
than the new slogan, “Pilipinas Kay Ganda,” of the Tourism department.
The new slogan was introduced recently, replacing the “Wow, Philippines!” shoutout.
However, several lawmakers said there was no need to drop the previous slogan, as the new
one would only confuse tourists who cannot understand Filipino. (PIA)
