Increasing popularity of Central European destinations among the Filipino tourists was supported by another event in Manila launched jointly by Ambassadors of the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland.
The Discover Central Europe roadshow, which included a seminar hosted by officials from state-run tourism organizations from the four Central European tourist powerhouses, attracted over 100 representatives from travel agencies and media that are looking to expand their tour offerings to include more destinations from the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia. The main partner of the event was Turkish Airlines, which offer flights to the capitals of the Central European countries.
Highlighting the following reception, the trailer of the forthcoming ABS-CBN teleserye “The Promise of Forever” was shown to the public for the first time. Czech Ambassador Jaroslav Olša, jr., standing together with the series´ leading lady – Ritz Azul - and her colleague Yana Asistio expressed his hope that “the success of The Promise of Forever could double the numbers of the Filipinos visiting the Czech Republic on the same way as the similar TV series Lovers in Prague did in South Korea a decade ago.”
