‘Di lang puro salita: Duterte to present results of ‘Build, Build, Build’ soon
President Rodrigo Duterte will present to the public the results of the administration’s ambitious infrastructure program soon, more than two years since he assumed office.
Duterte made the announcement Thursday (November 8) when he distributed certificates of land ownership award to agrarian reform beneficiaries in Boracay.
“In the coming days, we will present to the nation the result of our toil and endeavor and that would refer to the long stretches of infrastructure completed by the department under Secretary Villar. Makita ho ninyo ‘yung resulta ng Build, Build, Build,” he said, referring to Public Works Secretary Mark Villar.
The controversial Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) Law was passed in part to finance the construction of 75 major infrastructure projects under the “Build, Build, Build” program.
In July, however, it was reported that only 10 of the projects are under construction while majority are under development.
