The Philippines has signed a commercial contract for the highest-funded government-to-government railway project connecting the Subic Bay Freeport Zone and the Clark International Airport, according to Chinese Ambassador to the Philippines Huang Xilian.

“Our cooperation continues! China and the Philippines just signed the commercial contract for the Subic-Clark railway project,” the envoy said in a Facebook post.

Huang said the contract is so far the highest funded G2G project between the two countries valued at approximately $940 million or P45.167 billion. It is considered the flagship project of the administration’s “Build, Build, Build” program of the Duterte administration.

The 71-km single-track railway will be located in south-central Luzon, connecting Subic Bay Freeport Zone and Clark International Airport and linking the DOTr’s North Railway Project, according to the ambassador’s statement.

The construction period is estimated to last 42 months, he said.

“Once completed, the railway will build resilient linkages between the commercial zones along the Subic-Clark corridor. Glad to see the improvement in logistic efficiency and other economic activities in the region,” Huang said.

Duterte says gov’t going ‘full-throttle’ on vaccine drive to ensure student safety

By Prince Golez

President Rodrigo Duterte on Thursday vowed that the government will go “full- throttle” in its mass coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccination program to ensure safe return to schools.

Duterte made the statement during the simultaneous inauguration of school buildings at the Gen. Gregorio H. Del Pilar Integrated School and Virginia Ramirez-Cruz High School in Bulakan, Bulacan.

“I assure you that the government is exerting all efforts to go full-throttle in this Covid-19 vaccination program to ensure the safety of students before the resumption of the face-to face-learning,” the Chief Executive said.

In his speech, Duterte also underscored the need for timely completion of government structures and projects and directed all concerned agencies to ensure the least inconvenience to the public during construction and maintain the highest ethical standards.

“Our investment in education infrastructure affirms our continuing commitment to promote the right of the people to quality and accessible education at all levels,” according to him.

“A good education is a valuable gift we can proudly pass on to succeeding generations of Filipinos. Let us join hands in developing the full potential of your youth as bearers of our nation’s sustainable future,” he concluded.
