PIA Press Release

Barangay Sasa sees bright prospects with expanded Sasa Port

Davao City (14 February) -- Barangay Captain Mario C. Reta of Barangay Sasa sees the Sasa Port expansion to bring substantial income and to trigger business developments in his barangay.

In an interview, Reta was anticipating of more investors to locate in Barangay Sasa now that the Sasa Port can accommodate more cargo and passengers vessels.

He was also expecting more people to find jobs with the newly completed Sasa Port expansion and that this development would become a factor for small businesses to sprout such as eateries and restaurants.

He has thought of developing a two-storey Sasa Public Market which would provide ample space for restaurant at its second floor.

He is also looking at the prospect for his barangay to rake substantial taxes in addition to the P17 million revenues that is enjoying from the Internal Revenue Allotment and from local taxes.

Aside from the P396,089,218 Sasa Port Expansion Project, Barangay Sasa will also be hosting the P870 million Passenger Terminal Building project which is of world-class quality.

Along with the passenger terminal building, the project will include the development of parking areas and roll-on roll-off ramp, a greeter building, and a gate complex.

In his talk with President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo in yesterday's inauguration of Sasa Port expansion project, Reta conveyed to the President of his family's gratitude that the national government has poured in development to the land that they donated.

The five-hectare land on which the buildings of the Philippine Ports Authority, the Bureau of Customs, the Philippine Coast Guard Authority and the stevedoring companies stand were once owned by the Reta family until their donation to the Government. (PIA XI/jda) [top]
