May 13, 2011, Washington, DC - The Embassy of the Philippines is pleased to announce that the  special package rate for the upcoming 6th Ambassadors, Consuls General and Tourism Directors (ACGTD) Tour to the Philippines on July 17-20 has been reduced to $1990* for those who will take Delta Airlines. In view of the recent decline in oil prices, Delta Airlines decided to reduce its air fare.

The major highlight of the tour, which is led by the Ambassadors and Consuls General in U.S. and Canada, is the visit to Malacanang (presidential palace) and an audience with President Benigno S. Aquino III.

The special tour package is inclusive of roundtrip ticket via Delta Airlines, hotel accommodation (3 nights and 4 days), hosted lunches and dinners, and a choice of day visit to nearby destinations like Corregidor, Laguna & Quezon, Bulacan & Pampanga, Batangas & Cavite.   For the budding entrepreneurs and experienced investors, business seminars are also being organized to include: Presentation on doing business in the Philippines; Cottage Industry demo; Kulinarya Food Tasting; Hilot & Indigenous Practices; Franchising in Philippine Food Business; and Green & Artisan Enterprises.  The deadline for registration is on June 3, 2011.
