What is TCP?

Tourism Congress of the Philippines is the leading voice of the Philippine Tourism Industry. Created under RA 9593 or the New Tourism Law, TCP aims to grow further the tourism industry of the Philippines.

TCP is the private sector consultative body which assists the government in the development and implementation of Tourism policies.

Serving as the voice of the Tourism Industry on matters of national interest, particularly those affecting the private sector, the TCP is composed of representatives of tourism enterprises all over the country, including former Secretaries of Tourism.

It is also responsible for developing a strong and institutionalized partnership between the government, through the Department of Tourism, and the private sector.

Owners and officers of Tourism enterprises all over the country are encouraged to join the TCP and get involved, through established channels, in the formulation and development of strategies that will ensure sustainability of the Tourism Industry.
