The national inflation also went down to 2.4 percent from 2.7 percent in July.
Residents urged to promote Sipalay
BY MARCHEL P. ESPINA
Sipalay City, the Jewel of the South, has come up with activities to encourage residents and even those who visited the locality to promote the city as part of its 14th Tourism Month celebration.
Themed “Safe and Secured Sipalay”, the activities include photo, video, and vlog contests, where winners can take home cash prizes and certificates.
The city government recently extended the temporary ban on the entry of tourists until September 15. This includes tourism-related and non-essential travel to the city.
