Arroyo launches anti-flood projects in Pampanga Bay
Speaker Gloria Macapagal Arroyo led the groundbreaking ceremony on October 9 of the Integrated Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation Measures in Low-Lying Areas of Pampanga Bay Phase 1.
The Pampanga 2nd District politiko said the project will lead to less flooding, the faster draining of floodwaters, less distraction on trade and commerce, and less chances of waterborne diseases.
“The project that we are launching today is perfect proof that if we are all united across administrations and within administrations, we can do so much for the good of the people of Pampanga and the Philippines,” said Arroyo.
The event was attended by Korean Ambassador Han Dong Man, Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Secretary Mark Villar, DPWH Undersecretary Emil Sadain, DPWH Project Director Patrick Gatan, Pampanga Governor Lilia Pineda, Pampanga Vice Governor Dennis Pineda, and Pampanga 4th District Representative Juan Pablo Bondoc.
