SAN FRANCISCO, Agusan del Sur — Another drug rehabilitation center funded by the Chinese government will rise on a 4.5-hectare government lot in Barangay Algeria here.

The P350-million project is a 150-bed facility set to be finished in 2020, according to Health Undersecretary Roger Tong-an.


The state-owned China State Construction Engineering Corp. will build the center.
