THE renovation of major tourist sites on the island initiated by the government continues with the help of non-government organizations and the private sector Gov. Ralph DLG Torres said on Tuesday.

He thanked the organizations and his Council of Economic Advisers for their commitment as well as for their participation in an islandwide cleanup.

The governor noted in particular the remodeling that has been done along the Gov. Froilan C. Tenorio Beach Road Pathway.

At the Grotto, the reconstruction of the stairs is ongoing while the Forbidden Island project has been completed, Torres said.

The governor said the ultimate goal of his Council of Economic Advisers under the leadership of Tan Holdings president and CEO Jerry Tan is to help the CNMI become a new brand of world-class tourism.

“So the council and our community partners are working on remodeling and revitalizing our tourist sites,” Torres said, adding that these include Rota and Tinian.

The governor hopes that in the next month or so, more tourist sites will be ready and up and running before the local tourism industry reopens.

He said the timeline of these renovation projects varies based on what work needs to be done.

Bird Island, for example, is a large project in comparison to others so the renovations there will take a little longer to complete, the governor said.

“The smaller projects may be completed within the next couple of months,” he added.
