Manoy Zubiri wants to promote Bukidnon tourism industry via painting contest
Bukidnon 3rd District Representative Manuel “Manoy” Zubiri is eyeing to promote the Bukidnon Tourism Industry thru a painting contest.
The Bukidnon solon, who is said to run for the Bukidnon gubernatorial seat in 2022, disclosed this during the closing program of the 1st Wall Mural Contest on May 10 held at the Grandstand of Camp Ramon M. Onahon.
After he saw the beauty of the artworks and the success of the Wall Mural Contest of the Philippine National Police in Bukidnon, he said he was inspired to sponsor another painting contest. But this time, he said, the artworks will use canvasses and will be centered on promoting the Tourism Industry in Bukidnon.
He said the finished artworks of beautiful tourist spots in Bukidnon can be installed along the provincial streets to attract tourists or travelers. Manoy Zubiri also encouraged local artists who are members of the Indigenous Peoples (IP) in the province to participate in the said upcoming contest for tourism once it will be finalized.
He shared his view while the province and the whole world are battling the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.
“During the pandemic, our efforts in barangay development continue. And once the pandemic is over, we will also boost the development of the Tourism Industry in Bukidnon,” Rep. Manoy said.
He is optimistic that the local tourism industry in Bukidnon will bounce back. (Report from BukidnonOnline.com special correspondent Mel B. Madera)
