Quotes

"The local government unit should be the rallying point of all these different coordinating agencies because they're the natural leaders of these communities. The private sector, the multilateral agencies and humanitarian organizations will go in and go out but the one who needs to do the plan together as far as reconstruction is concerned is the local government. Not just on the city or municipality levels but on the provincial level,” Lopa said."
Airline officials were not immediately available for comment. "The continuing deterioration of the runway surface must be addressed immediately for the safety of all aircraft landing in Tacloban" Joya said
The flight of jets such as Airbus A320 and Boeing B737 will reume "after the total replacement of the five-inch asphalt on the whole runway."
"We are expecting some 18 cruise ships this year that should bring in more than 20,000 tourists. Our country's proximity to major cruise source markets like China, Japan and Hong Kong positions us at a competitive and comparative advantage in the Asia-Pacific region. This should give industry stakeholders greater prospects and our local communities new jobs and opportunities" the tourism chief added
