Corona virus travel ban could spell P27-Bn loss for tourism sectors

The country’s tourism and travel industry are projected to lose some at least P27 billion with the temporary travel ban imposed by Malacañang on travelers from China, Hong Kong and China. The Tourism Congress of the Philippines welcomed the move of Malacañang citing that they acknowledge that the country’s safety and health takes precedence over business at this time. From January to November 2019, tourists from China were the second-largest spenders in the Philippines at $2.14 billion or P109.14 billion.
