When President Rodrigo Duterte took office, he vowed to turn the Philippines into a tourism destination for the world, but the honeymoon is now over.
The Philippines lost nearly a quarter of its tourism sector in 2017.
The loss of tourism was partly due to a surge in illegal activities like the “jungle tourism” and the trafficking of people.
A report published by the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) estimates that between 2013 and 2016, over 60,000 people were trafficked to countries such as Bangladesh, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, and Sri Lanka.
There are also estimates that more than 6,000 children are being trafficked each day.
The country also suffered a sharp increase in crime.
There was an increase in murders of foreigners, especially women and children.
The report also found that more Filipinos were forced to work as prostitutes than in the past.
Tourism is still the biggest source of income for the country, accounting for 20% of its GDP.
There were over 20 million foreign tourists in 2017, but only 1.5 million Filipinos.
The government hopes that with the economic recovery, tourism will return to normal by 2020.
But it has yet to achieve this.
Many foreign visitors still stay at home, and even those who do are still struggling to make ends meet.
There is an estimated 4 million foreign workers in the country.
With the economic slowdown, the Philippines’ tourism sector has struggled to recover.
Tourism industry and the economy, however, have not been on a downward spiral.
It has been able to grow because of an influx of foreign tourists and an increase of foreign investment in the tourism sector.
The tourism industry is estimated to contribute approximately 4% of the GDP.
The economic recovery is now on hold, and the situation has turned worse.
It is estimated that about half of the country’s tourism sector is still suffering from a decline in foreign tourists.
In the first five months of 2018, there were only over 4,000 foreign tourists visiting the country every day.
This means that the total number of foreigners living in the Philippines fell by almost 15,000 from a year ago.
The number of tourists has also decreased due to the economic downturn.
The foreign visitor industry is projected to contribute around 1.8% of GDP this year.
This is also down from 2.5% in 2017 and 2.7% in 2016.
Foreign visitors to the Philippines have also contributed to the countrys economic growth.
The growth of foreign tourism was estimated to be around 4% in 2018.
In 2018, foreign tourists were spending about US$3.4 billion in the city of Manila alone.
In 2020, the total amount spent was US$2.9 billion.
The increase in foreign visitors also meant an increase by the government of the number of foreign workers who work in the hotel and other businesses.
The International Organization of Migration estimates that there were 4.5-5 million foreign guest workers working in the Philippine hospitality sector in 2018, compared to 3.4 million workers in 2017 when there were almost 10 million guest workers.
The Government of the Philippines has also made efforts to increase the foreign guest worker population.
The Philippine government has established a program to help recruit and train foreign guestworkers to work in restaurants, hotels, and other establishments.
There have been reports of some guestworkers having to work for months to secure visas.
In addition, the Philippine government is increasing the number and type of visas that can be issued to foreign guestworker.
However, it still has a long way to go.
The first step in the foreign worker program was to expand the number who were authorized to work and train in the hospitality sector.
In 2019, the Department of Labor and Employment established a visa training program that allowed foreigners to work without a visa for up to six months.
This program was meant to encourage foreigners to start their own businesses and hire foreign workers.
However this program was quickly criticized for the lack of training.
In 2017, there was a total of 5,300 foreign guest Workers applying for visas.
This was followed by an increase to 12,600 foreign guest Worker visas in 2020.
There has been a decrease in the number that are authorized to apply for visas from 5,500 to 3,400.
This also means that there are a lot of visas waiting for foreigners working in other industries.
In 2021, the number was reduced to 3 to 5,600, which was down from 8,000 in 2020 and 11,600 in 2016, when there was around 10,000 workers in that industry.
There also is no way to increase visa levels for the foreign workers because they cannot be hired directly.
In 2022, the program was expanded to allow foreign workers to work at restaurants, bars, or other establishments for up 24 hours a day and up to 12 hours a night.
The program was supposed to have two phases.
The phase one was to allow workers to apply to work
