The HOTEL and RESTAURANT INDUSTRY BOARD (HRIB) was established in June 1980 by the National Manpower and Youth Council (NMYC) in accordance with Article 50 of the New Labor Code. The board was subsequently registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on January 5, 1981 as a non stock, non-profit technical foundation. It is a tripartite boy composed of representatives from the government, private and labor sectors which aims to provide manpower development within the hotel and restaurant industry.
In 1991, the Board of Trustees under HRIBFI Resolution No. 001-91 agreed to rename HRIB as the TOURISM INDUSTRY BOARD FOUNDATION, INC. to be able to expand its coverage/membership to all sectors of the tourism industry. The conversion was finally approved by the SEC on March 25, 1992.
