Greetings to your good office!

Sir, in light of President Duterte Cabinet's Economic Development Cluster's COVID Response Package, may you please enlighten us why 14.1 Billion was assigned to the Tourism Programs and Packages.

I requested this information because I want facts to back up my opinion, which is as follows:

My opinion is that the response package is to mitigate the loss in all government sectors, including Tourism, while being able to provide funding for the Department of Health.

Please confirm, and I promise to share this to all my friends and families so they will be informed
