Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade touted the improved Port of Abra de Ilog in Occidental Mindoro, one of the projects recently inaugurated in the province.

Tugade said that the old port was in dilapidated state and can no longer be used.

“Noon, kalawangin at sira-sira na ang mga bakal at iba pang pundasyon ng mga pasilidad ng Port of Abra de Ilog sa Occidental Mindoro. Hindi na rin ito napakikinabangan pa, dahil lumang-luma na ito,” said Tugade.

“Ngunit dahil ito po ang pangunahing port sa lalawigan batid ng DOTr at PPA na ito ay isaayos, pagandihan, at gawing moderno,” he added.

“Ngayon, mas matibay, malawak, at mayroon nang Port Operations Building (POB) ang Port of Abra de Ilog,” he continued.

President Rodrigo Duterte, Together with Tugade and Philippine Ports Authority General Manager Daniel Santiago, spearheaded the simultaneous inauguration of eight integrated seaport development projects in the provinces of Mindoro.

“Ngayong unti-unti nang nakakabangon ang bansa sa epekto ng pandemya, magpapatupad muli ang DOTr at PPA ng panibagong expansion project para sa pantalan, at maglalagay pa ng mga bagong breakwater sa bukana nito,” he said.
