As part of his administration’s thrust to boost tourism, President Benigno S. Aquino III invited the delegates attending the International Federation of Head and Neck Oncologic Society (IFHNOS) to find time during their convention to visit the different tourist spots of the country for them to get to know more about its rich culture and people.

The Chief Executive made the pitch in his keynote speech during the joint opening ceremonies of the International Federation of Head and Neck Oncologic Societies (IFHNOS) and the Philippine Societies of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery (PSO-HNS) conventions on Sunday at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Pasig City.

“I’m very happy that the International Federation of Head and Neck Oncologic Society (IFHNOS) chose Manila as one of the venues for its 2010 Global Continuing Medical Education Program,” the President said.

“While you’re here, let me make a gentle reminder: my government has great plans underway to further develop tourism. I hope that while you are at this convention, you can still have some time to visit some of our historical sites and get to know more about our country’s rich culture, feast on our authentic cuisines, meet our beautiful people and be enthralled by our breathtaking locations,” he stressed.

Around 700 delegates to the joint convention composed of foreign and local medical practitioners in the fields of otolaryngology, head and neck oncology and surgery are participating in the three-day event.
