Advisory: Online Survey in Connection with the Review/Updating of the Tourism Response and Recovery Plan

Parallel to the ongoing Focus Group Discussions (FGDs) and scheduled Key Information Interviews (KIIs) for the Tourism Response and Recovery Plan (TRRP) review and updating, the Office of Tourism Development Planning, Research and Information Management (OTDPRIM) will be conducting an online survey for DOT accredited establishments. This is to assess the current conditions of the enterprises, the reasons for availment or nonavailment of the recovery packages, other sources of financing tapped, and to identify their immediate needs in the next 6 to 12 months.

In this regard, DOT-NCR enjoins accredited establishments and members of the tourismrelated associations (accommodation, transport, restaurants, tour guides, farm tourism, etc.) to answer the survey, not later than 14 May 2021, which can be accessed through this link:

For your guidance and compliance.
