DOT: Food festivals should get foreign attention
Tourism Secretary Wanda Corazon Teo said the Philippines will boost the promotion of food festivals abroad.
Teo said in a meeting with tourism leaders that major events like the Madrid Fusion Manila will be reviewed but will still be supported by the tourism department.
Philippine posts abroad have been introducing Filipino food and cuisine abroad in order to woo investors.
Natural and organic is seen as one of the best ways to penetrate big markets like the US.
