ARMM’s public works department (DPWH-ARMM) secretary Don Mustapha Loong was also a signatory in the MOA.
“The road project will help locals transport their crops easier and faster since it provides the needed farm-to-market connectivity,” Regional Secretary Loong said
The Tawi-Tawi provincial government will be helping the regional government in the procurement and implementation of these 4 projects.
“I am happy to bring home this good news regarding the approval of these projects. It will surely help our province,” Tawi-Tawi Governor Matba said.
The concreting of the Moktar-Ungus-Ungus road is something enclaves in the area are most especially thankful. The road will provide access to many of the isolated farms in the area and once put in place, it will facilitate the farmers’ transportation of their products to local markets.
These projects are part of the continuing reforms of DPWH-ARMM to further develop the province of Tawi-Tawi
