|BANTON 2003 – MASTER PLAN|
the project to work, the right organization should be in place. A
committee should be formed and maintained to plan, lead and coordinate all
these activities. Subcommittees should be formed as follows:
Development Committee. This committee shall be in charge of the
development of the sites as discussed above. This committee should work
hand in hand with the Marketing & Promotions Committee to find
developers of the site, be it under the government agency or the private
Control Committee. Quality is a primordial concern of tourists. Time
is very important for these persons and get easily annoyed if made to
wait. Waiting long for a boat to arrive (for which Banton boat operators
are notorious) at the destination will surely piss them off. Overcharging
is also a big turnoff. Safety is also another major concern.
committee shall work on a tourism accreditation system to ensure that
services availed by visitors are of the highest quality and efficiency
permitted by available resources and integrity. Service providers
– like motorboat operators, motorcycle operators, stores, eateries –
should meet set standards for it to be accredited. For example, for an
eatery to be accredited, it should be rated by the sanitary inspector as
Class A or in case of a motorboat, it should be clean, safe and
arrives/leaves as scheduled. Tourist guides should possess a minimum level
of communication skills and knowledge about Banton, Bantoanons, tourism
committee shall also be in charge of monitoring the quality of service
given to tourists. Service providers may lose accreditation if they do not
perform as expected of them.
& Promotions Committee. The committee shall be in charge of promoting
the island to prospective investors, developers and service providers.
It shall also take care of marketing the island as a tourism site. It
should draw out plans and strategies to ensure that exposure is maximized
and tourists are attracted to go to the island.
Coordinating Committee. The committee shall be in charge of preparing the
tourism calendar. It should be in charge of coordinating with government
offices, non-governmental organizations, private institutions and
individuals sponsoring activities/affairs.
Committee. The committee shall be in charge of ensuring that service
facilities are available and sufficient. The committee shall team up with
the Marketing & Promotions Committee in inviting potential service
Legislative Committee. A special legislative committee shall also be
formed so that proper resolutions and ordinances are promulgated in the
Sangguniang Bayan or even in the Sangguniang Panlalawigan fast.
this can be carried out by the municipal government, help of the private
sector is necessary to get things done fast, especially so if we want this
done in 2003. Like what is being done during Balik-Banton celebrations,
there has to be a partnership with the private sector. It should be noted
though that this is a long-term project and is much much bigger than
Balik-Banton celebrations. An umbrella non-profit and non-governmental
organization registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission can
start this thing out. Silak it Bantoanon, Inc., probably one of only few
Bantoanon SEC registered non-profit organization may be used. The
leadership has expressed willingness to relinquish their posts in favor of
more qualified individuals.
The umbrella organization may recognize affiliate organizations especially those representing the sectors that would directly benefit if the eco-cultural tourism industry progresses like the businessmen, transport operators and service providers. It would be better if they are organized.
