Women of the World: Bernadette Romulo Puyat

Full of grit, passion, and love for our country - our very own Secretary of the Department of Tourism, Bernadette Romula Puyat is in our month’s #SRWomenOfTheWorld feature.

Having traveled across different regions in the country and experiencing local cultures, DOT Secretary, Berna promises a leadership that is firm in its advocacy towards sustainable and responsible tourism. Together with her experience in the DA, she wishes to advance agri-tourism by showcasing the variety Philippines has to offer without sacrificing the environment.


In an interview with Lifestyle Asia, DOT Secretary Berna says that she considers herself as a tourist because what she wants to see is what she wants to implement. She will stop at nothing to showcase the Philippines’ rich culture to the world while also working to preserve its beauty.
