Biz group to push for airport, other projects

The Davao City Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCCI) is pushing for key programs, including the feasibility for a new airport as it expects the national government to eventually approve the creation of the independent body that will manage the facility.
At the induction of its new set of officers Tuesday at the Marco Polo Hotel, Arturo M. Milan, DCCCI reelected president, said the establishment of a new airport is just one of the issues that the business group is pushing for during his term.
“Together with the officers we will conduct regular consultations on issues concerning their industries,” Milan said in his speech.
He added his group will also push for the fast- fast-tracking of the modernization of the terminal of the Francisco Bangoy International Airport.
The P40.57 billion Davao International Airport Development Project involving the “provision of additional facilities and other necessary improvement to enhance safety, security, access, passenger and cargo movement efficiency at the airport,” a project that is under deliberations before the national government.
In the recent report of National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) XI, Department of Transportation (DOTr) is currently working on securing the consultancy services for the advance engineering and other parts of the airport project.
The business group is also pushing for the modernization of the Sasa Wharf as the project is intended to upgrade the berthing system, including the installation of port lighting system.
Milan said another project that the business group is pushing for is the completion of the coastal road as this will lighten the traffic in the main road.
“We believe that the success in business is anchored on the progress of our community. We are after all Dabawenyos first,” he added.
