Taguig City Rep. Pia Cayetano will make the protection and preservation of country’s cultural heritage a priority in the Senate should she win a seat in the upcoming polls.

“That is really what I want to give attention to, our hundreds of years of customs and cultural practices. I want to promote the preservation of our people’s history and culture,” Cayetano said in a radio interview in Quezon province last week.

Cayetano lamented that some Filipinos take cultural heritage for granted while foreign tourists spend so much money to experience them.

“This is how preserving our cultural heritage leads to growth. It gives value to our people, boosts tourism and local industries, and provides more career opportunities for our youth,” she said.

Cayetano encouraged all sectors in society in the province of Quezon and in the entire country to get involved in the preservation of their cultures.
