The national government renewed its commitment to continue the “Build, Build, Build” infrastructure program as one of the major ways to revive the country’s economy after being severely impacted by coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) pandemic.
“Kabahagi pa rin po at importante pa rin ang papel ng ‘Build, Build, Build’ para sa ating recovery mula dito sa Covid-19,” Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said.
Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez III shared the same sentiments and affirmed that the resumption of infrastructure projects under the “Build, Build, Build” program is the “best way” to reboot the country’s economy.
Public Works Secretary Mark Villar reported on the progress of the current infrastructure projects. To date, the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) Harbor Link, the NLEX-SLEX Connector, the Cavite-Laguna Expressway, the Metro Manila Skyway Stage 3, the R-1 Bridge Project, the Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway Project, and the Subic Freeport Expressway Project have resumed construction, according to Villar.
