    Manila-Luzon lang halos. Paano na yung ibang parte ng Pilipinas na kailangan ng infrastructure para maboast yung local economy at tourism?

    Infrastructure during the Aquino has been not existent. The only accomplishments he’s had is the fact that projects initiated from the previous admin gets completed during his term and he takes the credit for it. It is also weird that he approves projects during the election season possibly to give the people some false sense that he’s doing things for the PI infra.
