Privatizing Burnham and Banaue

Here's from gmanews.tv
An influential business group wants the government to privatize a handful of the country's major tourist spots, a move that they said will ensure the preservation of the areas. Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry president and appointed tourism private sector chief Samie Lim said the Philippine Tourism Authority should sell some of its major assets which have the potential to become even more attractive to both foreign and local visitors. Among those spots that should be privatized are the Banaue Rice Terraces, Picnic Grove and Palace in the Sky in Tagaytay City, and Burnham Park in Baguio City.

Why is the government's solution always privitization? I guess I'm just so used to the business models out here where either the local government charges an admission fee to get into a park or is a partnership with the private sector or nonprofit organization to maintain the place. Either way, the government loses in another opportunity to raise funds and maintain these public areas.
