With the booming development of the ESL industry in Cebu, the Department of Tourism (DOT) will be engaging with and providing its support to the Education sector to boost its competence in promoting tourism.
The DOT-7 regional direction, Shalimar O. Tamano, emphasized the significance of the ESL sector in tourism, as it strengthens the bonds between Cebu and other foreign countries
The National ESL convention was organized to assist the industry in properly providing easy access to the ESL sector to address its concerns with the government.

Holding the convention in the province of Cebu will improve its standing in the ESL global market, knowing that Cebu is the leading ESL destination in Asia.
