Trouble In Paradise by Boy Guingguing
« on: June 18, 2007, 03:23:15 PM »
Boy Guingguing is the Publisher of the Bohol Sunday Post

from his column BGLante

Before anyone else out there cries exaggeration, let it be said that try as we did that it is not, this BGlante feels that this is one concern worth our while.

We are referring to the planned seismic survey in the seawaters off Cebu and Bohol that has reached its boiling point. (Scheduled on June 18, the seismic survey was moved to an indefinite date after stakeholders demanded that more consultations to affected parties are in order).

What about us? So asked the tourism sector particularly the diving segment of the market. This segment is asking while the proponents have their hands full entertaining the complaints of marginal fishermen, nobody seems to notice that an equally bigger party is looming in the dark for recognition.

According to data provided by proponents, the diving sector of the tourism business will also be affected because the seismic area should be cleared from all obstructions. In a wide radius of 4.5 kilometers, the seismic survey will operate in this area clearing the way of divers, commercial ferries, commercial fishing boats and fishermen. In other words, these are the affected parties that will be dislocated during the seismic operations.

As part of the huge tourism market, there's no question that the diving sector occupies a big segment of the travel and tour business.

That is why through the initiative of tourism guru Walter Sultan of Travel Village fame, the diving sector made up of resort owners and dive shops operators in Panglao and this city are raising the alarm bells for them to be recognized of how their sector was affected by the coming seismic survey.

Their concerns did not fall in deaf ears, however. In fact, representatives of the Department of Energy and NorAsia Energy Ltd. scheduled a meeting of the diving and resort sector this coming Tuesday.

It was heartening to note that proponents recognized the impact of the seismic survey to the tourism sector.

We have it from a good authority that about 80% of the business in the Alona beach beltway depends on the diving business. And to think that divers are the kind of tourists that stay book longer days and nights. Longer stays mean long resort accommodation and longer patronage to hotel facilities like restaurants, spas, etc.

And per inputs from industry players, the stretch of sea highway from Balicasag to Cabilao is a virtual diving paradise., And with trouble in paradise, how much do you think is the loss in revenues to all key players of the business-from resort owners, dive shop operators to travel and tour outfits, once divers are banned from the area on account of the seismic activity. We hate to say this, but one casualty is Sultan's Travel Village. It will become Trouble Village.  ;D

Kidding aside, are we underestimating their existence? Adding insult to injury to the diving sector is that the seismic survey came at a time when it is vacation time all over the world and therefore its peak season for vacationers. This means that at this time of the year, tourist traffic is usually higher compared to normal times. To the uninitiated, while Filipinos are trooping back to school this time, it's vacation time all over the world.

As we said, we are glad that the plight of tourism stakeholders are addressed to in the government's frantic search for oil and natural gas deposits(that explains the seismic survey). For God's sake, the tourism business is not against the seismic plan of the government. It is just that it is being conscious that it has a role to play in making the business sustainable and make every stakeholder happy.(June 17, 2007)

It's like discovering the Dead Sea Scrolls in the cave of Qumran
Or unearthing the Gospel of Judas in the Hag Namadi desert.

A reader's interest could, indeed, resurrect ancient writings   ;D
