PIA Press Release

PGMA assures construction of new international airport in Sta. Ana, Cagayan

Tuguegarao City (4 August) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo hailed the Cagayan Economic Zone Authority (CEZA) for creating thousands of local jobs for local employment and the ongoing expansion of the airport at Sta. Ana, Cagayan.

The President visited CEZA to get an update on her commitment projects mentioned in her previous State of the Nation Addresses.

She said the creation of thousands of jobs is a result of the operation of Port Irene and the Amusement center in Sta. Ana.

"The airport was expanded, bigger then one in Boracay, and a new international airport is about to be built," President Arroyo said.

Originally, the Sta. Ana airstrip is one of the commitment projects of the President for Region II in her 2007 SONA to be developed as international airport.

The President also appreciated the beautiful beaches of North Cagayan most especially the newly discovered Anguib Beach in Sta. Ana, which she said be showcased to foreign tourist.

She also mentioned that there are foreign investors who already expressed to build resort near Anguib beach. They are just waiting for the international airport to be built, she added.

Meantime, the acceleration of Port Irene's development as the country's most gateway to Asia and the Pacific is one of the priority projects presented to the President by the participants of the Local Peace and Security Assembly composed of Local Government officials, Church officials, NGOs, Academe, Peoples Organizations, business and private sectors of the region.
