3 big projects in NLAQ Super Region for completion end of 2009 or early 2010 - Yap

Manila (27 February) -- Three big projects in the Northwest Luzon Growth Quadrangle (NLAQ) Super Region worth billions of pesos, are set for completion by the end of 2009 or early 2010, Agriculture Secretary Arthur Yap said.

Speaking to newsmen in Dagupan City on Wednesday night, Yap said these include the Agno River Integrated Irrigation Project (ARIIP) in Pangasinan, Halsema Highway from Baguio to Mountain Province and Tabuk-Tinglayan Road in Kalinga.

Yap, who was designated development czar for NLAQ, said slowly, these projects are now being completed.

NLAQ covers the whole of Ilocos Region, Cordillera, Region 2 and part of Region 3.

Yap explained that the Alaminos Airport was not included in the medium-term plan for NLAQ but it remains a part of the priority programs of President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.

He, however, is in quandary if the Alaminos Airport is included in the 2009 budget and if not, he said it will surely be included in the 2010 budget.

But Yap expressed confidence that for year 2009, the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) has allocated a start-up budget.

He recalled that when he was Presidential Management Staff in 2006, he was the one who included the project in the list of priorities of President Arroyo.

NLAQ is expected to produce food for the other four Super Regions, particularly the Metro Manila Beltway, including Southern China. (PNA) [top]
