Who are We & What We Do

TIBFI is a tripartite body composed of representatives from the government, private and labor sectors. We aim to provide manpower development in various tourism enterprises.

Background

TIBFI Tripartate MembershipThe Hotel and Restaurant Industry Board (HRIB) was established in June 1980 by the National Manpower and Youth Council (NMYC) in accordance with Article 50 of the New Labor Code.

The board was subsequently registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on January 5, 1981 as a non-stock, non-profit technical foundation. It is a tripartite body composed of representatives from the government, private and labor sectors which aims to provide manpower development in various tourism enterprises.

In 1991, the Board of Trustees under HRIBFI Resolution 001-91 agreed to rename HRIB as the Tourism Industry Board Foundation, Inc. to be able to expand its coverage/membership to all sectors of the tourism industry. The conversion was finally approved by the SEC on March 25, 1992.
