Through Sanggunian Resolution No. 068-2019, the Sangguniang Panlalawigan of Agusan del Norte approved and declared valid the City Ordinance no. 2018-058 from the Sangguniang Panlungsod of Cabadbaran, requiring the submission of tourism statistic data report to the Cabadbaran City Tourism office.

In order to continue the development of the tourism industry in the locality, all tourism accommodations, establishments, travel agencies, resorts, museums, galleries and all identified tourist destinations are required to submit a monthly report on Tourism Statistics data to the Cabdabaran City Tourism Office in accordance with Republic Act 9593, "The Tourism Act of 2009" and secure clearance prior to application for Annual Renewal of the business permit and for other purposes, and providing penalties thereof.”

According to R.A 9593, Section 38, to monitor the resources of the Department and to ensure the economic and tourism effectiveness, all LGUs shall provide an inventory of all resources available in the department. They shall likewise periodically report to the department on the status of tourism, plans and programs, tourist arrivals and tourism enterprises, and among others.
The measure was referred to the Committee on Laws, Ethics, and Peace and Order led by Provincial Board Member Aquino W. Gambe. It is evident that such tourist arrival statistics data showcases the real situation in urban tourism and its impact to the economy.

It is considered a good step to support proposals for tourism development projects.

The measure also aims to identify Cabadbaran City as a leading tourist attraction area and destination with the goal of promoting investments for the city.
