MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) – The infrastructure unit of the Aboitiz group submitted a P148-billion unsolicited proposal to upgrade, expand, operate, and maintain 4 major Philippine regional airports over a 35-year concession period.

The 4 regional gateways – Iloilo International Airport, Bacolod-Silay Airport, Laguindingan Airport, and New Bohol International Airport in Panglao – are key entry points into the Visayas and northern Mindanao.

"Not only will none of the airports require any form of subsidy, the combined potential of the 4 regional gateways results in overall gains for both the government and the local economy," Sabin Aboitiz, president and chief executive officer of Aboitiz InfraCapital Incorporated, said in a statement on Wednesday, March 7.

MANILA -- Japan plans to provide official development assistance (ODA) loans of up to 42.48 billion yen (about PHP20.6 billion) for two infrastructure projects, including upgrading the Metro Rail Transit (MRT) 3 railway in Manila, as it strongly supports the sustainable economic development of the Philippines.

Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono expressed his country’s intention to extend ODA loan financing, subject to the necessary Japanese and Philippine governments’ approval processes for the projects, during the Japan-Philippines Foreign Ministers’ Meeting held Wednesday in Tokyo.

Kono bared planned total loan provision of up to 38.101 billion Japanese yen for the MRT Line 3 Rehabilitation Project, and provision of up to 4.376 billion yen for the New Bohol Airport Construction and Sustainable Environment Protection Project, to Philippine Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano.

Likewise, Japan offered additional funds for construction of a new airport in Bohol province in a bid to handle the increasing passenger numbers.

“It is expected that due to the construction of the new Bohol airport, the province will be able to handle nearly three times as many aircraft arrivals and departures as before, improving the convenience and safety of air transportation, and contributing to the revitalization and sustainable growth of the region,” added the MOFA of Japan.

During the fifth meeting of the Japan-Philippines Joint Committee on Infrastructure Development and Economic Cooperation also held Wednesday in Tokyo, participants from two countries discussed approaches to cooperating in order to resolve the major challenges the Philippines is addressing.
