President Marcos sees further transformation of Tagum, Davao del Norte

TAGUM CITY, Davao del Norte (PIA)– President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. sees a major transformation of Tagum City, Davao, once big-ticket projects in the province and in its adjacent provinces are completed.

Among these projects are the Mawab-Maragusan-Caraga Road, the Carmen-Tagum City Coastal Road, and the Tagum City Bypass Road.

The Mindanao Railway Project Phase 1 that the President also mentioned was the most applauded, along with the expansion of the Davao Regional Medical Center (DRMC) into a seven-storey hospital “to provide quality and reliable medical services.”

The President also promised the repair of the New Visayas-Tulalian Farm-to-Market Road to ease the delivery of agricultural products to the market.

Knowing that Davao del Norte often suffers from flooding, he revealed his directive to the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) to complete the remaining flood control projects in Davao del Norte.

He told Dabaonon that these flood-control projects were also designed for storing water for irrigation and for setting up solar power systems.

“Pagsumikapan natin na sa mas lalong madaling panahon ay walang Pilipinong nakalubog sa baha at sa kahirapan. Ito po ang Bagong Pilipinas,” he said with the applause of the audience.

(Let us strive to hasten when no more Filipinos will be flooded or endure poverty. This is Bagong Pilipinas.)

President Marcos visited Tagum City, Davao del Norte, a day before the Bagong Pilipinas Serbisyo Fair (BPSF) – Davao del Norte leg, which is expected to draw more than 200,000 online registered service-takers upon its opening tomorrow morning.

The President led the distribution of assistance to farmers and fisherfolk, not only in Davao del Norte but also in Davao Oriental and Davao de Oro. (JMDA, PIA DAVNOR)
