CSF Welcomes ATOP Delegates [ Tuesday, 8th of November 2016 | 7 months ago ]


Tourism officers from all over the country were awed and inspired by the rich Fernandino culture and heritage during their visit in the city today.

Mayor Edwin "EdSa" Santiago, Vice-Mayor Jimmy Lazatin and Tourism Officer Ching Pangilinan led the welcoming of 41 guests who are members of the Association of Tourism Officers of the Philippines at the Heroes Hall.

In his welcome remarks, Mayor EdSa thanked all the delegates for choosing San Fernando, among other towns and municipalities in the province, as their venue for a whole day tour.
"Today you are going to experience how it feels to be Fernandinos as we share you our rich culture, festivals and traditions," Santiago added.

"We look at tourism industry as a vehicle to help our people develop a variety of skills. As a service sector with cross-cutting impact on agriculture, construction or handicrafts, tourism creates millions of jobs and business opportunities" he said.

Pangilinan, on her part, discussed the city's banner program: preserving heritage for progress, which was part of Mayor EdSa's development agenda under Agenda 9: "Kulturang Kapampangan, salamin ng kasayasayan. Tuklasin, buhayin, pagyamanin!"

At present, 5 heritage houses, 4 monuments and the historic Train Station are already registered by the National Historical Commission of the Philippines.

Also part of itinerary is a tour at the Train Station and Heritage District while on board our local Kalesas. They visited the Metropolitan Cathedral and the newly opened Pasalubong Center where local Fernandino products are sold.

Kapampangan's delectable cuisine was also promoted through a cooking demonstration featuring native dish Kilayin and exotic foods like Betute and Camaru.

Dubbed as the Christmas Capital of the Philippines, the city also hosted a free lantern making exhibition led by multi-awarded lantern maker Rolan Quiambao.

The tour is part of 17th ATOP National Convention which was held in Pampanga.
