BCDA pushes Dutertenomics

The Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) has reaffirmed its commitment to take part in the Dutertenomics goal of “Build, Build, Build” as it takes centerstage in building infrastructure projects worth over P600 billion.
Dutertenomics’ battle cry is dubbed as “the country’s most ambitious infrastructure plan” seeking to build more roads, subways, trains and ports to expedite movement of goods and services in various parts of the country.   
BCDA is one of the government agencies present during the formal announcement of the massive infrastructure buildup at the Conrad hotel in Pasay City.
Also included in the project are the Department of Finance (DoF), Department of Budget and Management (DBM), National Economic Development Authority, Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) and Department of Transportation (DOTr).
For its part, BCDA will build the country’s first and only smart and green metropolis called New Clark City.  
The 9,450-hectare development within the Clark Special Economic Zone will feature mixed-use real estate developments namely for housing, a business continuity center that will house national government agencies, an agro-industrial park that will provide a platform for research and development,  a food processing terminal, and the Philippine Sports City.
The New Clark City will be a network of open spaces served by public transport.  It will be a long-term solution to traffic congestion in main urban centers.
Another project that will increase connectivity from region to region is the new, world-class passenger terminal in Clark International Airport.
With a proposed capacity of eight million passengers, the new terminal is expected to decongest Manila-based terminals and encourage Filipinos to use the airport as a viable alternative to NAIA.
The Dutertenomics forum offered the perfect venue to generate awareness on the Build Build Build infrastructure plan.  
The Forum hopes to jumpstart advocacy for Duterte’s economic and development blueprint, which includes major governance, economic and fiscal policies and the comprehensive infrastructure program.
The DoF, DBM, Neda, DPWH, DoTr and BCDA are working closely for the first time in Philippine history in order to address the need for infrastructure critical to reducing poverty in the country as outlined in Duterte’s 0+10 socioeconomic agenda.  
Infrastructure will boost economic growth, create a competitive business climate, generate jobs, and uplift the lives of the Filipino people.

    It is great to hear that DoF, DBM, Neda, DPWH, DoTr and BCDA are closely working together for the first. I hope and pray that all sectors not only the government will work for the common good of all, not just enriching one's pocket.
