The Provincial Tourism Office is deeply saddened by the passing of the former Board Member and Chairman of Committee on Tourism, Hon. Aristotle J. Gaza.

A few of his contributions are the creation of the Bataan Historical Council, Provincial Council for Culture and the Arts, and the adoption of Republic Act No. 9593: An act declaring a National Policy for Tourism as an engine of Investment, Employment, Growth, and National Development.

We send our thoughts and prayers to his bereaved loved ones, and we pray for the eternal repose of his soul.

Bataan Tourism office will be forever grateful to him for his valuable contributions to the progress of the tourism industry in Bataan.
