At least 70 students were hired as tourist aides as Ilocos Norte prepares for reopening its borders to tourists.

Under the Special Program for the Employment of Students (SPES), the students will assist in ensuring the safety of tourists amid the pandemic.

“This program is jointly conducted by the Provincial Government of Ilocos Norte, Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE), and the Public Employment and Service Office (PESO), meant to generate local employment and give opportunities for students to earn while they learn,” Xavier Ruiz, operations officer of the Ilocos Norte Tourism Office (INTO), said in an interview Thursday.
