The Boracay Inter-Agency Task force (BIATF) ensures that all operations on casinos and other business establishments in Boracay Island will be in accordance with the existing laws.
This is based on the BIATF's joint statement after President Rodrigo Duterte allowed casinos to operate once more on the Island as a means to help the government's lack of funding.
Meanwhile, to ensure the environmental sustainability of Boracay Island, every line agency will continue to abide by its mandates and objectives.
Businesses were also reminded by the BIATF to submit their requirements and accreditation processes, as the BIATF assured that only those who follow the legal process would be issued the corresponding permit.
The BIATF is spearheaded by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and co-chaired by the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) and the Department of Tourism (DOT).
