Wow Pilipinas thanks Department of Tourism for the clarification that the said agency is not, in any way, related or affiliated with our party. While our advocacy group composed of various private individuals and groups from different regions support the Department of Tourism and all other stakeholders in championing the cause of tourism in the country, we are NOT a government entity with a public mandate or function.
We are unaware of any insinuation or reports linking Wow Pilipinas to DOT, but we hope our separate statements clarify the issue at hand. We agree with DOT that no government agency should be involved in any political or partisan exercise. Our party is not receiving any form of support from DOT or other government agencies.
That said, Wow Pilipinas is more than willing to work with any group, associations, volunteers, and individuals who want to advance our advocacy of TRABAHO at TURISMO. We hope our thrust of championing tourism will reach more communities.
