THE DAVAO Oriental provincial government is preparing for the visit and evaluation by the Club of Most Beautiful Bays in the World for the formal inclusion of Pujada Bay in the list. “We will be waiting for the ground validation,” said Ednar Carlos G. Dayanghirang, chief of staff of Davao Oriental Gov. Nelson L. Dayanghirang, adding that there is no specific date set yet. Mr. Dayanghirang attended the club’s general assembly in Japan last Oct. 18, where the 27-member group accepted the Pujada Bay application. The validation process will determine the bay’s listing and induction during the club’s World Congress next year, to be held in Morocco. The provincial government, together with the Mati City government, supported the bay’s listing as part of the campaign to boost the local tourism industry. Davao Oriental is also home to the Mount Hamiguitan Range Wildlife Sanctuary, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. — Carmelito Q. Francisco
