PGMA's super region legacy tour swings to Luzon Urban Beltway

Tacloban City (February 7) -- After the successful North Luzon Agribusiness Quadrangle and Cyber Corridor, President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo's Super Region Legacy Tours will shift to Luzon Urban Beltway.

This was hinted by Cabinet Secretary Silvestre Bello III, who said that the venue of the next Cabinet meeting will be at the Luzon Urban Beltway, likely "somewhere in Bulacan."

Secretary Bello said that President Arroyo will focus on her "achievable projects" under her Luzon Urban Beltway Super Region program, which focuses on building farm to market roads in the hope of giving more jobs to farmers.

The Luzon Urban Beltway known as the nation's heartland of industry, trade and commerce of the country, contributes the most to the national economy among all the other super regions. Of the country's total gross domestic product, about 55% come from the Luzon Urban Beltway Super Region.

Under the super regions concepts of development, Luzon Urban Beltway is composed of the National Capital Region, Region IV-A, the provinces of Bulacan, Bataan, Pampanga, Mindoro, Marinduque, and the southern parts of the provinces of Tarlac, Zambales, Aurora and Nueva Ecija.

In her 2006 State of the Nation Address, President Arroyo announced the creation of five Super Regions. Apart from the Cyber Corridor, the other four are Agribusiness Mindanao, Tourism Central Philippines, North Luzon Agribusiness Quadrangle, and Luzon Urban Beltway.

The President, in that address, noted the importance of grouping selected regions and provinces by their economic strengths to stimulate economic growth and development so that the Philippines can keep up with its Asian neighbors.

What the PGMA detractors once branded as "SONA dreamland" has truly become shining legacies of the Arroyo Administration, living monuments built by sincere commitment to service for love of the Filipino people. (PIA 8) [top]
