President-elect Rodrigo Duterte has chosen a sister of one of his closest friends, journalist Ramon Tulfo, as his Tourism Secretary.
Wanda Corazon Tulfo Teo is one of Tulfo’s three sisters in a brood of 10.
Teo owns Mt. Apo Travel and Tours and is the president of the National Association of Independent Travel Agencies, the self-styled “biggest and the largest travel association in the country.”
Her Cabinet appointment was announced by newly appointed deputy presidential spokesman Ernesto Abella on PTV-4 on 13 June 2016. Teo will replace Tourism Secretary Mon Jimenez who coined the catchy “It’s More Fun in the Philippines” campaign.
