Dear Atty. Olba,

The requested data will be used to help determine if there is a leasing market for San Juan & San Fernando City La Union given that it is a tourist destination. Furthermore, my study is to see if there is value for investors in the available condominiums in the area.

The data will be used for my masteral dissertation on the leasing market in the province.

Should the request be approved, may I request for the data to show up to which cities and municipalities the tourists comes from.

Thank you.
