Baguio City Mayor Benjamin Magalong said the Baguio Flower Festival Foundation, Inc. (BFFFI) will still be the organizer of the 2020 Panagbenga.
The Summer Capital’s flower festival has been handled by BFFFI for over a decade.
The Baguio politiko’s statement came amid proposals for the city government to take over the annual celebration.
But Magalong said that the city government needs the private sector’s expertise in organizing an event of that magnitude.
He also said there is no compelling reason to take over the flower festival.
