MANILA, Philippines — President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. said on Thursday that he hoped development projects would help maintain peace in Tawi-Tawi.

While distributing aid to El Niño struck communities in Tawi-Tawi, Marcos said the government was working on a major road project to construct roads and bridges in Zamboanga Peninsula and Tawi-Tawi province.

“Ako po ay tunay [na] natutuwa sa kapayapaan na inyong tinatamasa ngayon. Upang pagtibayin ito, masaya kong ibinabalita na ang inyong pamahalaan ay patuloy na magsasagawa ng mga proyekto para sa inyong kaunlaran tulad ng Improving Growth Corridors in Mindanao Road Sector Project na [pinasinayaan] natin noong nakaraang taon,” Marcos told beneficiaries.

(I am happy with the peace you are experiencing now. To strengthen this, I am pleased to tell you that we will continue developing projects like the Improving Growth Corridors in Mindanao Road Sector Project we started last year.)

Marcos said that under the project, three bridges will be built in Tawi-Tawi to help with transportation and livelihood.

Selected beneficiaries in the area will get P10,000 each, and there will also be a Bagong Pilipinas Serbisyo Fair where cash assistance, employment opportunities, agricultural aid and more will be provided.
