      Catagbacan port here has been eyed to be the anchor destination of the Ship for Southeast Asian Youth Program (SSEAYP), Asia’s “floating university,” in its next annual cruise in 2009.

      First District Rep. Edgar Chatto, a 1982 SSEAYP ambassador of goodwill and alumnus, now works out on the plan which is projected to further boost Bohol’s eco-cultural tourism through the hosting of Asia’s floating university.

      Catagbacan port, as the venue of the international exchange program, will help facilitate improvement of sea facility in the area and accelerate its conversion into the country’s most modern international cruise ship port at a whooping cost of about P200 million.

      The Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) has assured Chatto of P80 million to start the major development of the Catagbacan port this year.

      The National Youth Commission (NYC) is solid behind Bohol’s first-ever hosting of SSYEAP by asking President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo to consider Catagbacan port as the anchor venue of the 11-nation exchange program.

      All NYC commissioners manifested this in a resolution also addressed to Chatto, Gov. Erico Aumentado, PPA General Manager Oscar Sevilla and Department of Tourism (DOT) Sec. Ace Durano.

      Chatto and Aumentado convinced PPA to hasten the implementation of the Catagbacan international cruise ship port project which Durano also endorsed to PPA.

      The NYC resolution says Bohol’s hosting to the SSEAYP is in support of Arroyo administration’s Super Region Program that projects central Philippines as the country’s “Tourism Super Region.”

      The SSEAYP will bring in 340 youth delegates from Japan and 10-member countries of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) aboard the MS Nippon Maru, a luxury cruise ship serving as SSEAYP’s floating alma mater.

      SSEAYP is an annual international cultural exchange program sponsored and organized by the Cabinet Office of Japan in partnership with ASEAN members- -Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Cambodia, Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam and Brunei Darussalam.

      Once in their anchor destination, the SSEAYP participants shall engage in land community activities such as homestay, institutional visits and exchanges with local youths.

      Activities on board include group discussions and interactions, cultural introductions and even sports and recreational events.

      The NYC monitored the tireless effort of Chatto and other Bohol leaders in pushing for Catagbacan port’s conversion into a global cruise ship port before the commission asked Malacañang to consider the Loon port for the prestigious SSEAYP staging.

      The two Boholanos in the NYC were Commissioner for the Visayas Benjie Culpa, a Catigbianon, and ex-officio Commissioner Jane Censoria Cajes, national federation president of the Sangguniang Kabataan (SK).

      Usec. Richard Alvin Nalupta, NYC chairman and chief executive officer, expects Chatto and Aumentado to influence Malacañang to support Catagbacan’s hosting of SSEAYP next year.

      The other signatories in the NYC resolution are Commisioners-at-Large Prescilla Marie Abante and Michael Francis Lopez, Commissioner for Luzon Raul Dominic Badilla and Commissioner for Mindanao Mohammad Hanny Camid.

      Chatto appreciated the support of NYC, the country’s sole policy-making body and coordinating body on youth affairs pursuant to Republic Act 8044 or the Youth in Nation Building Act of 1995.

      The NYC resolution further cites Bohol’s significance to the country’s eco-cultural tourism that offers rich cultural heritage, history and natural beauty.

      The SSEAYP event can help promote Loon’s adventure tourism, which exhibit won in the recent 2nd Philippine International Fair in Cebu City.

      Chatto, chairman of Congress’ tourism committee, was one of the guest speakers in the event that attracted investors and visitors from some 100 countries.

      The SSEAYP goodwill mission in has been compared to the historical Sandugo, the first international unofficial treaty of friendship, over 400 years ago when Spanish Miguel Lopez de Legaspi and native chieftain, Datu Sikatuna forged the Blood Compact.
