Ex-DENR chief eyes ‘green project’ in Zamboanga City
ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVIST Regina Paz L. Lopez, who previously served as secretary of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), is planning to invest in a project in Zamboanga City that would help towards developing a “green economy.” “I want to do something in Zamboanga,” Ms. Lopez told the local media here in a press conference on the sidelines of the ongoing National Youth Day 2017. “If a place has the potential, it just needs a little marketing then it will boom,” she said, adding that “as long as the community commits to value the environment.” Ms. Lopez also said that she can lobby business groups to consider environment-related investments into the city. —
