    A Mindanao university’s active participation and leadership for events such as tourism is one thing that our region needs. Students who are this land’s future handlers should really be aware of tourism’s importance not just here but also in the entire Philippines. After all, our country not only needs academically qualified graduates but Filipinos who care.

    1. @Jessica, I agree. As young as they are, they should develop in themselves a “culture of tourism” just like the Thais who receive millions of visitors each year.
