Right after his return from a three-day visit in typhoon-hit areas in Central Philippines, President Benigno S. Aquino III went straight to Port of Manila to inspect the RoRo (roll-on, roll-off) vessel which will deliver relief goods in Visayas.
The ship bound for Tacloban City carried 145 20-footer container vans filled with relief supplies. It is scheduled to depart at 11 p.m. and will reach Tacloban on Friday at 3 p.m.
The President was joined by Finance Secretary Cesar Purisima and Public Works and Highways Secretary Rogelio Singson.
