PGMA scheduled for China visit for development aid

Manila (24 September) -- President Gloria Macapagal—Arroyo is scheduled to visit the People's Republic of China on Oct. 2-3, 2007 to seek a P8.4 billion development aid.

Palace officials explain that Chinese assistance is being sought by the Philippine government for at least four (4) agricultural projects including the rehabilitation of the Agno River Irrigation System, which President Arroyo promised to prioritize in her State of the Nation Address.

The Agno River Irrigation System aims to irrigate an additional 3,416.5 hectares of farmlands in San Manuel, Asingan, Binalonan and Villasis in Pangasinan. The project will benefit more than 2,600 farm families, generate 1,200 new jobs and is expected to increase rice production in Pangasinan by 26,307 tons.

According to Secretary Yap, the other three (3) projects that the Chief Executive would be seeking assistance with the Chinese are the Balintingon River Multipurpose project in Nueva Ecija, the rehabilitation of the Navotas fish port, and the mobile refrigeration facilities for fishing communities in various parts of the country.
