    Starting Monday, the Philippines will adopt “Pilipinas kay Ganda" as its new slogan in what Malacañang described as a bid to "reinvigorate" the country's tourism campaign.

    President Benigno Aquino III said the new slogan to be launched Nov. 15 will replace the existing slogan "WOW Philippines".

    The slogan aims to "reinvigorate our country’s tourism campaign and double tourist arrivals within the next three years," said a Malacañang statement posted Saturday night on the Presidential Communications Operations Office website.

    Aquino, who is now in Japan for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit, said the government will also train tourist police and guides to ensure the safety of local and foreign tourists alike.

    Earlier this month, the Department of Tourism (DOT) said it would allocate P100 million for new media promotions, including a new website, to reach its goal of doubling tourist arrivals. (See: Govt to beef up RP tourism using new media — DOT)

    Philippine tourism suffered a blow last Aug. 23 when retired police officer Rolando Mendoza took hostage a busful of Hong Kong tourists in Manila.

    Mendoza was killed along with eight tourists, prompting Hong Kong to issue a "black" alert discouraging travel to the Philippines.—JV, GMANews.TV

    HUH? Pilipinas kay Ganda?

    Tanga naman, how can a foreigner understand what Kay Ganda means when they see a tourist poster of the Philippines?

    parang ang target lang talaga ay mga Pinoy overseas... or mga marunong magbasa ng Tagalog... di kaya galing ng ABSCBN yung nag coin nyan.. parang malapit sa "Umagang Kay Ganda".... lakas talaga ng influence ng ABSCBN sa gobyerno natin...

    if I am a foreigner and I read a sign with that.. or see an ad over at CNN or BBC... I still have to ask "What does Eng Gendaa mean?"... let's see how Malacanang (or should it be Dept of Tourism.. o baka ABSCBN... ) defends this...

    Philippines: Survive at your own means



    Seriously, dapat tanggalin na nila yung "Buy Philippines" liner on Expo, as it connotes a different meaning, like Philippines for sale.
