During the signing ceremony, Administrator Padilla highlighted the importance of the media in the IA’s promotional campaign and advocacy activities.
“The media has become an indispensable instrument in our daily lives with increasing need for a platform to express our thoughts and showcase our interest especially in promoting and accelerating the public’s enthusiasm in exploring potential tourist attractions like Intramuros,” Padilla said.
DG Mon Cualoping for his part emphasized the need to promote Intramuros not only on-ground but also online through interesting and inspiring stories shared across the country.
