BAGAC, Bataan – Mayor Louise Gabriel Q. del Rosario of this town is instituting an ecological development scheme as a roadway toward sustainable agro-forest leisure industry.
The preparation of the pervasive program includes the identification and analysis of unique tourism travel and leisure resources and other attractions of the town’s historical, cultural, and agro-forest sites which strongly determine the appropriate products and activities to be developed, packaged and promoted for the benefit of micro, small and medium entrepreneurs in the community and the local and foreign visitors.
The long-range master plan for the inclusive growth of a booming travel industry conceived by Mayor Del Rosario would enrich further the agro-historical tourism aspect of the town.
Bagac is considered as the largest town in Bataan in terms of land area with 23,120 hectares nestled in the forest land of the province known as Bataan National Park with estimated 65,430 hectares and categorized as timberland forest reservation, watershed, national shrine, national parks, military and naval reservations. .
The long range economic development plan includes the improvement of upland roads leading to the direction of still undeveloped scenic waterfalls, picnic grounds and nature parks, mountain trekking activities and others.
Municipal Administrator Nick Ancheta said that Mayor Del Rosario sees the strong possibilities that eco-tourism provides in terms of forest preservation and local economy needs to be looked into considering the extent to which some indigenous communities rely on forest resources for their livelihood.
