Group Description

The Department of Tourism (DOT) and Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) entered a Technical Cooperation Project (2009-2012) entitled "Development of Tourism Statistics System for Local Government Units (LGUs)".

The major output of the project was the Standard Local Tourism Statistics System (SLTSS). It was also seen as the milestone in monitoring domestic and internal tourism in the Philippines and has been presented in international workshops, being one of the first of its kind in tourism worldwide.

The project strengthened the capability of the LGUs in tourism development by providing them with technical skills primarily in developing a local tourism database that allow them to analyze their tourism situation objectively.

The project also strengthened ties between DOT and the LGUs. It was also a point of convergence between DOT and the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG).

This yahoo group would serve as one of the primary communication tool for the nationwide implementation of the SLTSS. Presentation materials and more importantly the standard forms will be uploaded here.

Initial members here are the representatives of the pilot LGUs as well as the DOT and its regional offices, the DILG, and the former participants from other regions. As such, this will also be the official forum for discussions and consultations regarding the implementation and institutionalization of the system, for what better way to learn than from people who shares our advocacy for better tourism statistics.
