Alessandro Zerbi the Secretary-General of the Confédération Mondiale Des Activités Subaquatiques (CMAS) is now in Cebu to check on the preparations of the historic event accompanied by Benedict Reyes, The Philippine Association on Underwater Activities (PAUA) President. In his arrival statement on Oct. 4, Zerbi cited “the many beautiful places” in Cebu and “the professionalism of Filipinos, especially the women.” Said Reyes: “We consider it a great opportunity to showcase what we’ve got in the Philippines.
