Ilocos Norte Governor Matthew Manotoc shared his plan on how to revive the local economy amid the COVID-19 pandemic: transform it into the Philippines’ sports capital.
According to the Politiko, the previous months and various engagements with sports teams have proven that the province is a safe haven for teams to train.
“We are located far north, but it’s very safe, and the facilities are of quality. And in a way, we capitalized on that. It would be worth their trip,” Gov. Manotoc said in his appearance in the weekly online Philippine Sportswriters Association Forum on Tuesday.
