Dear Ms. Aquino:

Mabuhay!

This refers to the Initiative In the ASEAN Plus Three to "Continue to Establish APPTEN and to Conduct Workshops/Dialogues for Exchange In Tourism Training Education."

The ASEAN Plus Three Tourism Training and Education Network (APPTEN) will serve as reference to establish a network to support the development of quality human resource in the ASEAN Plus Three.

In this regard, may we seek the TIBFl's assistance in accomplishing the attached APPTEN Directory template? We are confident that with the TIBFl's network of tourism education and training institutions. the Philippines will be able to contribute in the establishment and activation of the APPTEN.

We would appreciate receiving the accomplished template on or before March 30. 2021.
