"The impact of government failure on tourism in the Philippines"

Professorial Lecture by Dr. Wilfred S. Manuela, Jr.

29 October 2015, 4:30PM - 6:00PM

5th Floor, New Rizal Library

While the Philippines aspires to be one of the top tourist destinations in
Southeast Asia, self-inflicted wounds like the failure of the government to
comply with international aviation safety standards may derail the country
from achieving its goals. This article estimates the short- and long-term
impact of the US FAA downgrade of the Philippine civil aviation system in
2008 and the EU ban of Philippine carriers in 2010 on tourist expenditures,
arrivals, and length of stay using monthly time series data. The
econometric model, consisting of three equations due to the endogeneity of
the tourist arrivals and length of stay variables in the tourist
expenditures equation, is estimated simultaneously using the generalized
method of moments. The results indicate that the US FAA downgrade and the
EU ban impact monthly tourist receipts negatively in the short term while
the downgrade also impacts tourist expenditures in the long term. Moreover,
the ban impacts length of stay negatively in the short and long term while
the downgrade impacts length of stay negatively only in the long term. The
substantial decline in tourism receipts from 2008 to 2010 despite an
increasing trend in tourist arrivals is due to the shorter stay of
tourists, indicating that high-spending tourists have not returned
following the downgrade and ban.
