Former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo is eager to work again on a project she prioritized when she was in Malacañang following her appointment as Presidential Adviser on Clark Flagship Programs and Projects.
Arroyo thanked Duterte Thursday (November 26) for the appointment, saying the development of the Clark-Subic service logistics corridor had been one of her “priority thrusts” as President.
“I am grateful to President Rodrigo Duterte for his trust in empowering me to provide advice on this economy-boosting initiative once more,” she said.
Arroyo, an economist, said Clark’s development was “indispensable for national recovery.”
“Let us join hands with government and business movers and shakers to turn Clark into Asia’s economic powerhouse in the 2020s!” she said.
The former President took her oath as presidential adviser at her home, before a barangay captain.
