MABALACAT, Pampanga, Nov. 6 — President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo has approved the release of P10-million funds for the construction of vital farm-to-market roads in this municipality in line with the government’s commitment to spur economic development in the countryside.

Mayor Marino "Boking" Morales said the President has given priority to the projects as part of her rural development and food security programs.

Morales said the road projects will be implemented in 10 barangays including Dau, Duquit, Lakandula, Santa Ines, Mabiga, San Francisco, among others.

"The projects are scattered in 10 different barangays and these will greatly help our farmers in transporting their produce," he said.

The mayor has expressed deep appreciation for all the support of the Arroyo administration in the local government, particularly in terms of infrastructure projects and basic services programs.

"The people of Mabalacat are very grateful to the President for implementing all of these projects which greatly contributes to our socio-economic development," he said.

He particularly cited some of the President's flagship projects including the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport, the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway, Northrail, among others.

He said all these projects will help Mabalacat attain its goal of becoming a city.

Mabalacat is a first class municipality vying to become the second component city of the province. (PNA)
