News: Arroyo to visit Dinagat island Wednesday

President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo is scheduled to visit this newly-proclaimed island province in the Caraga Region Wednesday to inaugurate a bridge that local officials said would help hasten the delivery of public services and spur economic development on the island.

On Wednesday, the President is scheduled to unveil the marker of a newly-completed bridge.

Dinagat Island Gov. Geraldine Ecleo-Villaroman, lone district Rep. Glenda Ecleo, and San Jose Mayor Benglen Ecleo will assist the President in the unveiling and ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Governor Villaroman said the President's visit underscores her sincerity in helping the province and in trying to uplift the lives of the residents.

Fellow anonymous, you undermined the leadership and the power of the newly created Dinagat province. Through the relentless effort of these executive officers, Dinagat became a province. Just sit back and watch my friend. Dinagat will emerge and rise as the model province of the Philippines. The world including you will be surprise how things easily change like the Global warming that no one thought happens as fast as it is. Again, just hold your horses and relax if you can do something good.

Can you please elaborate what kinds of destruction you are referring? These destructions can be eradicated depending the situation and the needs of the island in order to grow. There is always a price to pay when changes has taken place. NOTHING remain the same FOREVER.

I agree they're opposite, but moving forward to progress without considering the effects of the invironment... it may contribute... What happens is, most of the projects implemented in the Philippines are done due to political promises and the rush to fulfill those promise (if they politicians are true to their promise), triple bottom assessment/study was bypassed. I am very confident that NO environmental impact assessment being carried out, and social impact assessment happened!!! Those two I mentioned might contribute to the delay of project implementation but in the long run might save a piece of environment for future generation.
