Mankayan Mayor Frenzel Ayong said the municipal government will be aggressive in pursuing investors who will build new accommodation and convention facilities in the town.
The Benguet politiko explained that many government agencies and private companies want to hold events and gatherings in Mankayan.
Mankayan is strategically located between Cordillera and Ilocos, making it a central location for gatherings as well as jump off points to tourist destinations.
Ayong also said that building new accommodation facilities will boost Mankayan’s economic growth.
“We have to aggressively pursue our partnerships with interested investors to achieve the level of development that will sustain our desired growth without sacrificing the state of our environment and existing sources of livelihood of our people,” he said.
