UTours, she said, “will exert our utmost efforts and support to help the people affected by Super Typhoon Yutu as well as sustain the local tourism industry.”

She added, “We will expedite our Saipan charter project plans with Top Development Inc. Saipan to increase tourist accessibilities to Saipan as soon as possible.”
