Gov’t to spend over P1T on infra for Northern Luzon
The region will see a construction boom over the next five years.
The government’s Build, Build, Build program is definitely taking shape, with the grand P8-trillion budget to see huge gains for Northern Luzon and Metro Manila.
Combined budgets for five regions up north reach P1.2 trillion for the years 2017 to 2022, Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Ernesto Pernia said.
This includes the promise of Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez III that Clark will be the next big metropolis of the Philippines, and will serve as the growth hub for Luzon.
