23 February 2016
President Benigno S. Aquino III gave an update on several completed and ongoing infrastructure projects in Bulacan province during a meeting with local leaders and community at the Bulacan Sports Complex in Malolos City.
Among those mentioned were the completion of the Angat Water Utilization and Aqueduct Improvement Project-Phase II back in July 2012, the ongoing Angat Dam and Dike Strengthening Project, and the recently signed Bulacan Bulk Water Supply Project.
According to the President, the said infrastructure projects are the result of accumulated income by the locality that had since doubled from 2009’s P5.23 billion to P12.82 billion in 2014. Overall, the province of Bulacan had been allotted with P19.04 billion to cover for all its infrastructure projects between the years 2011 to 2016. This includes the construction of 234 farm-to-market roads that already stretches 70 kilometers and had benefitted almost 7,000 local farmers.
“Yung mga dating akala nating imposibleng magawa, nagagawa na natin ngayon. Lalong lumilinaw: sa mabuting pamamahala, nasasagad ang potensyal ng Pilipino at ng Pilipinas,” he said.
The President also called on the Bulakenyos to choose their next leaders wisely and to continue choosing “Tuwid na Daan” in the upcoming national election on May 2016.
