Infra development seen as a way to improve Filipinos lives

by T. Villavert

Iloilo City (19 September) -- Infrastructure development and upgrading has been an integral part of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo's legacy agenda which, according t her is the only way to go to improve the lives of Filipinos.

In the city and province of Iloilo, several infrastructure projects have been implemented and the recent landmark project is the new Iloilo Airport, and soon the first Iloilo City Fly Over which is being constructed at the intersection of Infante and Gen. Luna Streets.

Director Rolando M. Asis said in a PIA interview, that the government's infrastructure projects are always complementary to the growth and development of the country's agriculture, industry, trade, commerce and tourism.

In line with this thrust, President Arroyo convened recently the Cabinet-National Economic and Development authority Board Meeting in Malacanang to fast-track the government's various infrastructure projects which are vital in sustaining the country's economic growth.

The President stressed during the said meeting, the importance of maintaining peace and order which is an important pre-requisite that investors look before deciding to invest.

She also called on Congress to expedite its concurrence to her Amnesty Proclamation which would greatly assist in the government's peace efforts by allowing former rebels and enemies of the state to return to the fold of the law. (PIA) [top]
