PGMA's development agenda opens up new opportunities in Iloilo

Estancia, Iloilo (8 October) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo's economic development program in the countryside has opened up new trade opportunities and has uplifted the social and economic lives of residents here.

Noted for its abundant marine resources, Estancia lies in the Visayan sea triangle, an imaginary triangle covering the provinces of Iloilo, Negros, Cebu, Samar, and Masbate.

These marine products are transported to other Visayan islands and Manila through the Strong Republic Nautical Highway project of the Arroyo administration.

As a result, Estancia has been reclassified from a fourth class three years ago to a second class municipality.

Under the leadership of Mayor Restituto Mosqueda, the municipality has closely followed the national priorities of health, poverty alleviation, infrastructure, and resource management.

The municipality is set to expand its water district through a P30-million funding from the Local Water Utilities Administration (LWUA). The groundbreaking ceremony is slated next week.

The water supply system project is aimed at meeting the increasing demand for potable water by a steadily growing population for the next 30 years. (PIA-MMIO) [top]
