Buri aquapark this August, just in time for PovCon2017 participants

Buri Aquapark is scheduled to be available before August 2017 ends. This will be the new attraction in Catbalogan City. This is one of the many topics discussed during the meeting with Cabalogan City LGU today, August 8, 2017 at Samar State University. This facility will just be in time for Catbalogan fiesta this August 24, 2017 and the National Conference on Poverty and Sustainable Development this September 13-15, 2017. Mayor Stepahny Uy-Tan is also going to host a Mayors Night cum Closing Ceremonies on September 14, 2017. Proposed plans and activities included in the Buri Island Development Plan are some of the many poverty alleviating initiatives of the city. The concept is encompassing all development concerns, from waste, environment, economic and social aspects.

On the third day of the conference, the Academic track participants can be ushered to the new Estaka beach with new facilities like cottages, and the aquapark similar to what is shown on the picture which is in Batangas. This is just one of the other destinations to be visited.
