Shutdown of Boracay
not a solution – Binay

Senator Nancy Binay-Angeles said she is not in favor of closing down Boracay because this will hurt tourism.

About 30 percent of tourists coming to the Philippines visit Boracay Island, Binay-Angeles, who was one of the principal sponsors of Murcia Mayor Andrew Montelibano and former Taguig beautyqueen Charmaine Hernandez,who were wed Saturday in Murcia town, said.

President Rodrigo Duterte had threatened to close down Boracay if perennial problems, including waste management, in the island are not solved within six months.
