‘Build’ gains to be presented
President Duterte is expected to highlight the progress of the government’s “Build, Build, Build” program in a forthcoming report to the nation.
In a visit to Boracay last Thursday, the President lauded the headway in the infrastructure projects and revealed plans to present to the public the result of the government’s hard work.
Duterte particularly praised Public Works and Highways Secretary Mark A. Villar for his work during the Boracay event.
"May I be allowed to acknowledge the presence of Public Works and Highways Secretary Mark Villar. He’s doing a good job," Duterte said at the start of an agrarian reform event.
"In the coming days, we will present to the nation the result of our toil and endeavor and that would refer to the long stretches of infrastructure completed by the department under Secretary Villar," he said. "Makita ho ninyo ‘yung resulta ng Build, Build, Build," he added.
The President made the remarks after tackling the infrastructure projects during a recent Cabinet meeting in Malacañang. The country’s first landport was among the projects recently completed by the government in partnership with the private sector.
