EX­PERTS: PEO­PLE NEED TO SEE GOOD PROJECTS

Philippine Daily Inquirer - - NEWS -

The proper im­ple­men­ta­tion of in­fras­truc­ture projects would be key to the suc­cess of the Duterte ad­min­is­tra­tion’s “Build, Build, Build” pro­gram, ac­cord­ing to ex­perts at a re­cent fo­rum or­ga­nized by Strat­base Al­bert del Rosario In­sti­tute (ADRi).

Dindo Man­hit, pres­i­dent of Strat­base ADRi, said in­fras­truc­ture lack was one of the rea­sons for the Philip­pines’ poor rank­ings in global busi­ness sur­veys.

“The most prob­lem­atic fac­tor for do­ing busi­ness in the coun­try is in­ad­e­quate in­fras­truc­ture,” Man­hit said in a state­ment.

In the same fo­rum, Alvin Ang pre­sented a study, en­ti­tled “Fi­nanc­ing In­clu­sive In­fras­truc­ture,” which iden­ti­fied sev­eral chal­lenges in the Build, Build, Build pro­gram.

It said it was not an is­sue whether projects were pub­lic-pri­vate part­ner­ships or funded by gov­ern­ment loans but whether they were im­ple­mented cor­rectly.
