    Secretary Bernadette Romulo—Puyat has directed officials of the Department of Tourism (DOT) to submit themselves to the lifestyle check being conducted by the Presidential Anti—Corruption Commission (PACC) in an effort to stamp out corruption in government.

    The directive comes following PACC's appeal for government officials to submit themselves to the investigation being conducted pursuant to the PACC's authority under Executive Order No. 43 s. 2017.

    "Not only do I submit myself, I also bring with me the DOT's officials, as we fully submit ourselves to the lifestyle check of the PACC. This our way of sending the message across that the DOT is one with the administration's anti-corruption drive," says the tourism chief.

    Secretary Puyat adds, "Needless to say, we laud the initiative of the PACC. We look forward to contributing to the report which they hope to complete by year's end."

    Upon her appointment as DOT Chief, Puyat, a career official with more than 25 years of untainted public service record, implemented policy reforms to ensure a systematic and graft and corruption-free operations of the DOT.
