CAVITE CITY – Cavite City Mayor Denver Chua went personally to the historic Corregidor Island with First District Congressman Jolo Revilla, Vice Mayor Raleigh Rusit, and city officials to look at its current status.

It can be remembered that the mayor already signed the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with Corregidor Foundation Incorporated (CFI) as Cavite City joined in to develop the island fortress further.

Corregidor Island is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the province of Cavite because of its beauty and rich history.

But according to the mayor, it seems that it has been “neglected” and is not being used properly and said he will focus on rehabilitating the Corregidor not just for tourism but to preserve its historical significance.

Meanwhile, promoting Corregidor Island in time with the planned construction of the Bataan-Cavite Bridge will benefit tourists wanting to visit the island.

In addition, it has been approved by the Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority (TIEZA) as the island’s final comprehensive tourism master plan that will help in the sustainable development and preservation of the island’s history.
