TRIP napaglaanan ng P17.6-M pondo – DBM
Aabot sa P17.689 bilyong pondo ang inilaan ng Department of Budget and Management para sa Tourism Road Infrastructure Program (TRIP) at ayon kay Budget Secretary Amenah Pangandaman huhugutin ito sa 2023 General Appropriations Act (GAA).
Nabatid na ang naturang pondo ay mas mataas ng P602 milyon kumpaara sa P17.087 bilyong pondo na inilaan noong 2022 at ito ay para sa construction, reconstruction, upgrading, at improvement ng mga kalsada at tulay.
“President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. has been very consistent with his pronouncements that infrastructure development is a priority under this administration. And so we, at DBM, shall do all we can to support the realization of this objective. And so we ensured that various infrastructure projects nationwide are allocated with necessary funds to support the Build, Better, More program,” pahayag ni Pangandaman.
Sabi pa niya: “Mobility and connectivity are vital components in tourism development. The Philippines has so many majestic places. But how will we attract tourists if there is no transport infrastructure in place to get them to these destinations with ease?”
Nabatid na ang TRIP ay convergence initiative ng Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) at Department of Tourism (DOT).
Ayon kay Pangandaman, P17.689 bilyon ang ilalaan sa tourism infrastructure projects sa Region I (Ilocos), Cordillera Administrative Region, Cagayan Valley, Central Luzon, CALABARZON, MIMAROPA, Bicol Region, Western Visayas, Central Visayas, Eastern Visayas, Zamboanga Peninsula, Northern Mindanao, Davao, SOCCSKSARGEN, at Caraga.
