    Through this Program, the National Government provided P20 B funding under the National Budget for 2012 and 2013 to identified tourism road projects. This is more than 32 times larger than the secured budget for access to tourism destinations in 2010. Another P14.4B worth of tourism infrastructure projects is proposed for the 2014 National Budget. This P34.4 B worth of funds translated to 202 tourism infrastructure projects with an estimated total project length of 2,094km based on total funding requirements. *
