22 April 2013

President Benigno S. Aquino III underscored some of the projects being initiated in the province of Misamis Oriental, as he paid a visit to the local community of Balingasag.

As mentioned in the President’s speech, among these projects are the construction of Laguindingan Airport and 18 farm-to-market roads, the implementation of 27 irrigation projects and the establishment of 4,500 housing units for the Cagayan de Oro resettlement sites. He also cited the allocation of P12 million for the Self-Employment Assistance Kaunlaran and P23 million for the Cash-for-Work program.

President Aquino also noted the potentials of the province which can only be honed through the people’s choice of leaders. “Kung nais ng mga taga-Misamis Oriental na mapakinabangan at mapasakamay ang mga pagkakataon dito, tungkulin ninyong pumili ng mga pinunong tunay na kaagapay ninyo, sa hirap man o sa ginhawa,” he said.

Transportations and Communications Secretary Joseph Emilio Aguinaldo Abaya joined the President in the event.
