Mr. Aquino also said that he expects a brighter future for the people of Aklan because of the huge potentials on the growth of tourism industry in the province.

Yun po ang palagay ko ang pangunahing misyon natin dito (What we want is very simple – we just want to see every Filipino enabled to improve his condition in life. That is the primary mission of my administration),” he said. “Hindi na ho pupuwede yung dating ugali na lumaki ang ekonomiya, maraming napuwera, okay lang (we can no longer have an economy that has grown, but with many not benefitting, as what had happened in the past.
