PGMA to inspect big road projects in Surigao del Sur on Tuesday

Lingig, Surigao del Sur (February 15) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo is set to inspect on Tuesday the big road project that connects Regions 11 and 13 in Mindanao.

When completed, this road project under the Mindanao Super Region development strategy of the Arroyo administration, will further enhance economic activity in the two progressing southern Mindanao regions.

President Arroyo will be welcomed at the Lingig municipal ground by at least 5,000 students from various schools, teachers, local officials and member beneficiaries of the national government's "pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program" or 4 Ps.

The President, along with some of her Cabinet officials, will also be met by Surigao del Sur Gov. Vicente Pimentel, 2nd District Rep. Florencio Garay and Lingig Mayor Jimmy Luna.

After a short program, the President, accompanied by the media group, will motor to Barangay Union of that same municipality for the briefing on the road project by Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Secretary Victor Domingo.

Along with Caraga DPWH Regional Director Dr. Evelyn T. Barroso, Secretary Domingo will brief the Chief Executive on the already completed Bislig-Lingig Section with two bridges last Jan. 25, and the ongoing ground works on the Lingig-Boundary Bolton Section.

The completion of the road project, which is bordering the provinces of Surigao del Sur and Davao Oriental, will complete the close to P2-billion Surigao-Davao Coastal Road under President Arroyo's SONA (State-of-the-Nation Address) projects.

On Tuesday morning, the President will also inaugurate the P50-million feeder port in Socorro town, Surigao del Norte province.

"These big infrastructure projects are a big boost to the economic activity of Surigao del Norte, Surigao del Sur and Davao Oriental and other neighboring areas in Northeastern and Southern Mindanao regions," said Director Barroso.

The visit of President Arroyo in Surigao del Norte and Surigao del Sur on Tuesday is part of her Mindanao Agribusiness Legacy Tour. (muc/PIA-Caraga) [top]
