PGMA visits 3 Central Luzon provinces under ULB project

San Fernando City, Pampanga (12 February) -- President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo visited this week three Central Luzon provinces that are part of the Urban Luzon Beltway (ULB) namely Bulacan, Zambales and Pampanga - her hometown.

She personally inspected the projects which have either been completed or still being constructed to see first hand the very concrete achievements of her administration.

This include Northville 8's 5-million peso Livelihood Productivity and Training Center in Malolos which empowers the families affected by the Northrail project, the three storey main building of Bulacan Polytechnic University in San Jose Del Monte City, Balaybay-Subic-Cawag road and the on going construction of Diosdado Macapagal International Airport's passenger terminal expansion.

President Arroyo also personally thanked Hanjin Heavy Industries & Construction Corporation (HHICC) for investing $ 1.9 billion over the last three years in Subic Freeport.

The Korean firm currently employs around 16,000 Filipinos.

She credited Hanjin Vice President Myung Goo Kwon for starting the inflow of Korean investments in Subic.

Envisioned to become a globally competitive industrial and service center, ULB is one of the five super regions mentioned by the President during her sixth State of the Nation Address (SONA) in 2006.

It groups the provinces and cities of Central Luzon, Metro Manila, CALABARZON and MIMAROPA (except Palawan and Romblon).

Other four super regions are Northern Luzon Agribusiness Quadrangle, Tourism Central Philippines, Agribusiness Mindanao and Cyber Corridor. (PIA 3) [top]
