MANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte has appointed Tourism Undersecretary Kat De Castro as a member of the board of directors of the Intercontinental Broadcasting Corporation (IBC-13).

The copy of appointment paper of De Castro released to media Wednesday was signed by the chief executive Monday.

She will serve the unexpired term of Manolito Cruz until June 30, 2019.

IBC-13 is a government-owned and -controlled television station, which is currently undergoing privatization. It is under the supervision of the Presidential Communications Operations Office.

De Castro was replaced by Edwin Enrile as tourism undersecretary.

During her stint at the agency, De Castro, along with former DOT chief Wanda Teo, spearheaded the $2-million “World’s Strongest Man” project.

The Commission on Audit has started reviewing the project, aimed to promote the country’s sports tourism sector, upon the request of Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat.
