“We congratulate Richard on this fine achievement, which is great news for the people of the Philippines,” said PATA President and CEO, Mr. Peter de Jong. “For PATA, it is good to know that it has a strong ally in the highest circles of  Philippines government. Richard Gordon remains dedicated to the cause of tourism as an instrument for empowerment, job creation and poverty alleviation.”
