 The submission of Digitized Road Map is on or before October 23, 2017

Suggestions

The following are the suggestions by the participants that were noted by the secretariat:

 There should be a monitoring and evaluation system exclusive for LRNDP especially
because this program will be an element of the SGLG.
 The Province of La Union is following a scheme. There are five (5) tourism circuits. Within
these five, there are gateways. Each gateway were identified as champions. It is suggested
then that these champions be included for its tourism circuit.
