Marites Allen says the “Build, Build, Build” program of the Duterte administration is a good idea but somewhat delayed.
“Infrastructure is important for economic development. I have been to the biggest cities and urban centers in the world and they planned and built infrastructure first before building the city. Like in London, the subway system had been built for over a hundred years already. What’s sad about the situation in Manila is it’s too late to build on Edsa. The solution is to build another megalopolis, Bulacan perhaps.”
