Resort owners in Boracay expressed concern over President Rodrigo Duterte's threat to close down Boracay if environmental issues remain unaddressed in six months' time. The resort owners, however, said they are willing to work with the government to address the environmental issues. This comes after Duterte on Friday threatened to close down Boracay which he described as a "cesspool," as he ordered Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu to clean the island in six months.
