Gov’t focuses now on Guimaras rehab

April 9, 2007

ILOILO City – A substantial release of the P867-million supplemental budget is now awaited to give impetus to the long-term rehabilitation of the once oil spill-affected island province of Guiumaras.

Secretary Rafael Coscolluela, Presidential adviser for Western Visayas, said the supplemental budget was based on the amount submitted by different line government agencies and the local government of Guimaras for the rehabilitation program.

The different line agencies are already implementing to some extent their own rehabilitation programs but “we look forward for the substantial release of funds, so we can move the program much faster,” Coscolluela said. (Panay News, April 9, 2007)
