Philippines earthquake "opportunity" for developmentListen /
An earthquake which devastated the province of Bohol in the Philippines in 2013 has turned out to be a development opportunity.
That's according to the chief of the UN's World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO).
In the wake of the disaster, the organization helped Bohol to deliver a recovery plan for the region's tourism sector which would contribute to sustainable development.
UNWTO Secretary-General Taleb Rifai has just returned from a visit to Bohol.
Daniel Dickinson began by asking him about the situation in the aftermath of the earthquake.
