Roxas City (17 April) -- Infrastructure support projects have become one of the top priority agenda of the government.

He said that the government is improving, rehabilitating, extending, expanding or constructing 20 priority road projects and one major bridge project costing a total of P96.688 billion nationwide by 2010.

These projects, he said, is in line with President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo's super regions concept that will promote tourism, logistics and faster and cheaper transport of agricultural products to the market.

Remonde stressed that the road projects aim to boost economic development in each super region by strengthening the linkages between provinces and between the super regions.
