DOT susuporta sa pagsasaayos ng Central Post Office


MANILA, Philippines – Nangako ang Department of Tourism (DOT) nitong Miyerkules, Mayo 24 na tutulong ito sa pagpapaayos sa makasaysayang Manila Central Post Office na tinupok ng apoy noong Linggo, Mayo 21.

“The incident concerning the unfortunate burning down of the Post Office is a tragedy in terms of heritage and it is such a cultural treasure that deserves national attention and support. We note the remarks that have been made by the City Government of Manila that has assured that it will not be torn down,” sinabi ni Tourism Secretary Christina Frasco.

“From our end [in] the Department of Tourism, recognizing the heritage value of this structure, we are prepared to follow through on the direction that the Marcos Administration would wish to take in terms of how to rehabilitate the structure, especially considering that our attached agency TIEZA [Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority] has long lent assistance in terms of rehabilitation of heritage structures,” aniya.

Noong 2018, idineklara ng National Museum of the Philippines ang Post Office building bilang isang “Important Cultural Property (ICP)” sa taglay nitong “exceptional cultural, artistic, and historical significance.”

Ayon sa Bureau of Fire Protection, tinatayang aabot sa P300 milyon ang halaga ng mga nasirang ari-arian at istruktura, kabilang ang mga padala, government IDs, mga dokumento at painting. RNT/JGC
