Modern PHL Airports to Lift Growth Higher
The tourism industry is one driver of economic growth that we should aggressively promote. Tourism directly creates jobs and significantly boosts the economy of a particular province or region.
Businessmen See Vibrant Economy
You don’t have to go to the details of the nation’s gross domestic product to find out how the economy will fare in 2019. The business plans of the tycoons and the businessmen say it all. They will tell you either in private or announce their plans in the business sections of major newspapers.
Airports, New Roads Supporting Economy
The robust public and private spending will continue to support economic growth in 2019 and lay the foundation for our long-term development.
I am particularly optimistic about the new roads and bridges being built to link towns and provinces, and the modern airports being developed in our major cities. While there are efforts to upgrade the Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Parañaque City, similar initiatives are being pursued to enhance the capacity of regional gateways, such as Clark, Laoag, Legazpi, Cebu, Davao, Panglao (Bohol), Puerto Princesa, Iloilo, Bacolod and Laguindingan (Misamis Oriental).
