THE use of the word corridor has been ‘prostituted’ many times over by development planners all the way from the time of Fidel Ramos and up to the present dispensation. Remember the IliganCagayan de Oro Growth Corridor? There never was enough growth along this corridor supposedly aimed at improving the infrastructure, enhance connectivity and ensure balanced growth in Northern Mindanao. To make the story short, the envisioned growth corridor was not convincing enough. And again, this time under an era of change, a comprehensive economic blueprint has recently been laid out called Mindanao Jobs Re-

port: A Strategy of Mindanao Regional Development. Accounting a third of the country’s poor, Mindanao, it has been said, has to unlock its full potential to bring down poverty. How to unlock the island’s great potential, the Mindanao report has identified three areas with which the need to address is urgent and most pressing: raise the productivity of Mindanao’s farm and fisheries sector by improving connectivity and access to local and global markets; invest in health, education, skills training, and social protection for the poor; and address the drivers of conflict by strengthening institutions in conflict-affected areas. The challenge is now up

for Mindanao -- to pursue socio-economic development initiatives through the four development corridors identified by the Report: the Northern Mindanao Development Corridor, Southern Mindanao Development Corridor, Western Mindanao Development Corridor, and the Bangsamoro Development Corridor. Supposedly designed to improve infrastructure, enhance linkages between growing and lagging regions, and ensure balanced growth, these growth corridors are perceived as it were to provide greater connectivity that can reduce transportation costs and improve the competitiveness of farmers and producers. So far, 35 infra proj-

Ruffy Magbanua

ects consisting of ports and airports improvements, inter-regional and intermodal roads, bridges, and roll-on, roll-off shipping facilities – are given priority for national government funding. The Mi nd ana o R e port says that a total of 21 of these priority projects already have funding, amounting to Php17 billion. The Mindanao Report believes that by unlocking the island’s potential, it could help sustain the See corridor, page 11

The boiling political atmosphere Approaching the presidential election in any country, the political atmosphere tends to be boiling. It is a national issue and very common. Throughout the regions of the country, people are getting anxious who the president will be in the near future. This expectation is logical and it is part of psychological condition for every human being’s life. The numberone-leader has the most powerful in terms of making the national policies. How big any organization is and what degree of the power any organization has all will depend on the president’s political strategies: the national policies. This is the starting point of

the rationales people have to get “the best president” for their country. By having lost in the presidential election, people will lose any strategic involvement in making the national policies. Yet, the national policies make everything good but tend to be bebeficial for the side of the oligarchies’ vested-interests. Not all the people—the laymen—can get involved in the national development. Let alone they get the benefits they have to for all equally. The most dangerous one is when the present national leadership is always hungry for the political dynasty. They have to keep having the whole power without providing opportunities for the young

generation. If that is the case, the national political atmosphere is getting hot: it is boiling. In such a national condition, much fake news or hoax news is frequently coming up in the digital society groups. Today, the face book account and the owner—Mark Zukerberg— has already been questioned before the congress due to some bad effects of that social media. We all are the eye-witnesses. The contents of this social media are not only the good ones but also the bad ones. The fake accounts with their fake contents are now being debated throughout the world. The most common one we have pres-

Dr. Djuwari

ently—approaching the presidential election—is degrading one another. Those who protect their present national leadership are also being attacked by the opposition—and vice versa. The contents of the messages are so varied. In tackling the boiling political atmosphere, there must be the best strategies by both the government sides and any private organization for making their members calm down. This is the best way such as by open and live debates rather than speaking loudly in the See atmosphere, page 11

Have my say

That’s not a bad idea

Very often - sometimes too often! - the thought is back! If we wake up in the morning (or even many times in the middle of the night), the thought is back. Sometimes, the thought will not let us sleep. The “act of thinking”, the “reflection”, the “opinion” or the “serious consideration”, no matter, how we describe it - our memory and conscience is always with us as a permanent companion. We brood over unsettled problem. Sometimes, we bear unfair treatments, arrogance, ignorance, incompetent know-it-all-betters, and unbearable oddballs, who inexorable love to make our life a hell while living themselves a disorderly life. We would not like to be distracted, but we’re toying with some good ideas how we could throw overboard

all that “human garbage”. What will come next is a matter of conjecture. Of course, I’ve got my ideas, but I’m not a mind reader. Too many trains of thought make us thoughtless and absent-minded - especially in difficult and important daily life situations. Does waiting and/or sleeping solve our problems? Or is it just again in time? Our life’s central idea should not be, that while waiting, time solves all our problems. Thoughts should intensify, condense and deepen plans follow by actions. It’s good and helpful to carry thoughts in us all the time. Incomprehensible, or better unfinished and un-matured thoughts, no matter whether positive or negative, should be slept on, before tiredness outstrips

us with supersonic speed. Sometimes, we feel that our thoughts and ideas can’t be fulfilled with life. Where the heart is willing, it will find a thousand ways; but where the heart is weak, it will find a thousands excuses. If doubts begin to take roots, we should rouse from pink-tinted idealism or wear down and annihilate nightmares and erase and wipe out such thoughts and ideas. If our thoughts are good and have the chance to be fulfilled in action, especially if “the other side” is prepared and willing to step on to such a bridge of life, we might get a support and words of encouragement. And, if not? No action? Maybe it is God’s will to keep and protect us from a careless, rash, disadvantageous and uneasy action.

Klaus Doring

Every new day gives us new inexhaustible possibilities to survive, to bear trials and to start a new beginning. We overlook and fail to notice many chances in lie through our sluggishness and laziness while thinking and dreaming of unequaled and unfulfilled ideas. And, my dear readers: As we all know - our time on earth is limited... . +++ Email: doringklaus@ gmail.com or follow me in Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter or visit www. germanexpatinthephilippines.blogspot.com or www. klausdoringsclassicalmusic. blogspot.com.

ABAC PH adds digital innovation, infrastructure to its priority areas The APEC Business Advisory Council (ABAC) Philippines has added digital innovation and infrastructure to its priority areas. Along with its thrusts on MSMEs, Non-Tariff Barriers, and Services, ABAC Philippines seeks to tackle the impact of digital technologies on education and future jobs and take advantage of regional opportunities that may complement the national government’s ambitious infrastructure push.

The broadened scope of work was announced following the conclusion of the first ABAC meeting for 2018 in Auckland, New Zealand last February, where these issues emerged as highly important for the Philippines. Sp e c i f i c a l l y, A BAC Philippines is organizing a public-private task force which will lead in formulating the strategic roadmap for digital innovation. The envisioned roadmap will be linked to government

policies, educational system and training programs. This effort is critical given that 48% of the activities of Filipino employees – equating to 18.2 million jobs – could be automated, based on a paper by international consulting firm McKinsey. Sectors most affected include agriculture, retail trade, and manufacturing. According to ABAC Philippines chair Tomas Alcantara, “Digital innovation will bring us to the See adds, page 11

DPWH to relocate to Clark by 2020 CLARK, Pampanga -- Following the the relocation of the Department of Transportation (DOTr) in Clark City in Pampanga, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) is now planning to follow suit. During the Philippine Economic Briefing at the ASEAN Convention Center here Friday, DPWH Secretary Mark Villar said the agency will be moving its office to Clark. In a separate interview, Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) President and Chief Executive Officer Vivencio Dizon told the Philippine News Agency that the DPWH will house its central office Mai Crafts Boutique + Cafe is just one of the many exhibitors in the recent edition of Big Bite at Centrio in Cagayan in the National Governde Oro City. The four-day event brought together innovative culinary dishes prepared by homegrown startups from ment Administrative Center (NGAC) within the New this part of Mindanao. photo by mark francisco

Clark Green City, the largest land development so far of the government-owned and controlled corporation. Dizon confirmed that DPWH will be one of the first movers in the NGAC along with the agencies under the government’s resiliency program such as Department of Interior and Local Government, Office of Civil Defense, and Department of Social Welfare and Development, among others. The first government building will rise in the Phase 1 of the NGAC, which is expected to be delivered by the last quarter of 2019 along with the two worldclass sports facilities for the country’s hosting of Southeast Asian Games, two buildings of athletic dormitory, and two residential buildings for government housing. (PNA)

BCDA and its private s e c tor p ar t ne r, M T D Capital Berhad of Malaysia, started the construction of the PHP121.8billion National Government Administrative Center (NGAC) within the New Clark City. It is intended to house satellite government offices, maj or administ rat ive offices of the executive departments, and even an extension office of Malacañang Palace, as well as embassies, housing for government employees, public schools, international schools, sports facilities, government hospital, a public librar y, and a central communications and security command center. According to AlloyMTD Philippines Chairman Isaac David, the company will field additional construction equipment by the end of this month to accelerate the construction of the NGAC, and to deliver on-time the Phase 1-A of the government center by the fourth quarter of 2019. “To achieve this, we mobilized four times the number of construction equipment normally ne e d e d. As of to d ay, we have 101 different types of equipment on the project site and will increase to 150 by end of the month,” said David. “This is on top of the

precast technology we are using which means some parts of the buildings are being done in fac tor ies and w i l l b e joined together at the project site,” he added. AlloyMTD Philippines is the local arm of MTD Capital Berhad’s infrastructure unit AlloyMTD. The NGAC will be a 220-hectare land development within the new well-planned metropolis. Prior to the NGAC, Filinvest Land, Inc. won the contract to develop the 288 hectares of land in the New Clark City to build commercial centers akin to the Bonifacio Global City, which is also a land development project of the BCDA. During the Philippine Economic Briefing at the Clark Freeport Zone last April 13, Dizon announced that the construction of the access roads to New Clark City from major points such as the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX) and Clark International Air p or t w i l l s o on b e underway. In an interview, Dizon said the BCDA will be awarding the contract for the SCTEX access road this week, while it will be bidding out the contract for the Clark airport-New Clark City road. (PNA)

By Kris Crismundo

MANILA -- The Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) has a total of 70,476 hectares of land in 137 new locations throughout the country to host new economic zones. Bulk of these potential areas for ecozone development are for manufacturing sector, present in 74 sites with a total land area of 39,941 hectares, according to PEZA data. This is followed by 19 new sites with 19,815-hectare land for tourism sector; 10,668-hectare land in 30 locations for agro-industrial ecozones; 42-hectare land in seven areas for information technology (IT) parks; 4.5-hectare land in six locations for IT centers; and one site with 5-hectare property NOTICE Notice is hereby given that the intestate estate of late EMMANUEL B.

for retirement services sector. PEZA said these lands are owned and managed by the Privatization and Management Office of the Department of Finance, Power Sector and Assets Liabilities Management, National Commission on Indigenous People, Philippine Mining Development Corp., and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources. Since PEZA Director General Charito Plaza took office in the country’s major investment promotion agency (IPA), PEZA has been active in engaging local government units (LGUs) and other public offices to offer their idle lands to be potential sites for development of more ecozones. From February 2017 to January 2018, PEZA had memoranda of agreement and understanding with 18 government agencies to collaborate in identifying new areas that can be converted to ecozones as well as helping the IPA to make doing

business in ecozones easier for existing and potential investors. Aside from aforementioned types of ecozones, the PEZA chief aims to attract developers of new ecozones such as agro-forestry ecozones, mineral processing ecozones, aquamarine ecozones, halal hubs and production zones, renewable energy eco-industrial parks, free trade zone in international airports and seaports logistics parks, and defense industrial complexes. Plaza earlier told the Philippine News Agency that the development of more ecozones will be helping the country to sustain its growth momentum as the Asian Development Bank called the Philippines’ economic expansion to be in its golden age. “Ecozones encourage export, increase production and manufacturing capability, and create thousand of jobs, thus spur the economic growth and increase of infrastructure and logistics transportation facilities,” she said.

Improving Pupil’s Nutrition through SBFP By Celia S. Bancale

Physical well-being of a child can greatly contribute to his learning ability. A child who is well-nourished to proven to learn easily, have greater retention and can participate well in class. This is the rationale why the government is implementing the School-Based Feeding Program (SBFP). In this program, fund is downloaded to the account of the recipient school and is subject for usual auditing. The recipient school through the designated feeding teacher submits the Nutritional Status Report of the school to the division office in which identified severely wasted and wasted pupils from kindergarten to grade 6 were listed to be the beneficiaries of the feeding program. Each beneficiary is allotted Php 16.00/day for a meal and Php 2.00 for the operational expenses. Consolacion Elementary School was one of the recipients of this program. For school year 2017-2018, there were 218 pupils who were fed. The school received a total of

Php 470,880.00 for 120 days feeding period. At the end of the feeding period, there had been a significant improvement to the recipient’s nutritional status. Seventy-nine percent (79%) or 173 from 218 pupils showed improvement in their nutritional status from severely wasted and wasted to Normal. It is also observed that there had been an increased of attendance, from 89% in the first feeding month to 94% in the last feeding month. The program is indeed a great help in terms of improving the health condition of the school-aged children especially those pupils whose families were financially challenged to provide good nutrition to their children. The faculty and staff of Consolacion Elementary School encourages stakeholders to support this program in order to sustain and expand the coverage to at least provide additional staff ’s honorarium and cover the additional expenses in the program implementation. With this, malnutrition is no longer a problem.

Sarah: ‘No to NDFP peace talks’ DAVAO CITY –Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio asked President Rodrigo Duterte to reconsider his decision to reopen the negotiations with the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP). Fresh from her trip with the President in China, Mayor Sara said that suspending the peace talks would not only mean ending the delusion of the Communist Party of the PhilippinesNew People’s Army-NDFP, but would also allow the realization of long-delayed growth and the development of the country sides. She said, “It also means giving justice to the victims of these terrorists. “Just like a battered lover, there is a time to finally say no to pain and suffering.” She pointed out that pursuing peace talks with the communist group is counterproductive and plainly useless. “While I trust the wisdom of the President and his intention to end the insur-

gency problem peacefully, I believe pursuing peace talks with the NDFP-CPP-NPA is counterproductive and plainly useless,” she said. “Mr. President, the country will move forward if the government is able to eliminate the rebels and end this senseless rebellion,” she urged the President. Earlier, the President said he was open to the resumption of the peace talks but, demanded a bilateral ceasefire, no taxes, no other atrocities and harassments. He repeated this Friday

following his fruitful trip from China. The President wanted the peace talks in the country and would be willing to cover all the expenses of all NDFP peace panel and consultants from plane fare to hotel. He even guaranteed their safety and security while in the country. “I have invited everybody outside of the Philippines who are communist members to come home, the leaders, and we can talk. I will give them my per-

The President even offered to deliver assistance, food in all their camps just to hold the line until there is a concrete and substantial peace agreement to sign. Duterte said he is doing all these in furtherance of his desire, the nation’s desire to have peace. But Mayor Sara in her statement said the insurgency problem can only be ended peacefully if the

NDFP and the Communist Party of the Philippines and its armed wing, the New People’s Army, are sincere, honest, and committed to working toward the direction of peace and reciprocate the gesture offered by the government. However, she added there are no indications at all that the CPP-NPA-NDFP are willing to negotiate for a peaceful resolution of the conflict. “History will also tell us that the communist movement is not to be trusted as they have consistently shown us their deep-seated proclivity to sow hate, violence and extremism, destruction, and senseless killings. These are groups motivated by the desire to overthrow the government and rule the nation,” she said. She pointed out that peace for the CPP-NPANDF is not an option because they are terrorists. “We maintain our position that we are not supposed

to negotiate with terrorists, but deal with them the way we should — tough, strong, high intensity, and one that gathers all sectors to completely crush their influence in communities where they are present,” she added. The mayor recalled the many atrocities perpetrated by the NPA like the killing of Larry Buenafe, the fish vendor who died because the NPA detonated a landmine in Mandug last year; the orphaned children of the poor civilians, the soldiers, police officers who were killed by the NPA in the name of a rusty ideology and deranged revolution. She also recalled the four-month-old Malysha Machorao who died after an NPA staged an ambush in Bukidnon last year.

of Elders, who participated in the selection process held at the Almacen Compound in Catalunan Pequeño on Thursday afternoon. Codilla was followed by Banzon with 86 votes, Bancas with 71, Anog 33, and Betil 5. The selection process was done through their customary law where members of Talaukom placed their sticks on each of the Lob-bha (basket) bearing the pictures of the candidates. In an interview, Codilla said she was overwhelmed by

the support of the majority of the tribe and she accepted the challenge to serve all the IP tribes in the city. “I hope that God will help me so that I can serve our IP tribes here in Davao City,” she said. The program that she is set to push in the city council includes the lowering of the standard of the scholarship program for IPs and providing boarding house allowance so that that the tribes can really avail of free education. “Our present scholarship program has standards and some IPs could not avail of it, so I would push to

lower it a bit so that many members of the tribe can qualify. Our office will do its best to allocate funds for the free boarding house that will be given to the IPs who will study college in the city so that there will be no hindrance for them to finish their college degree,” she said. Codilla also wants to push for a health care assistance for IPs in the city. She said despite the many government health programs for IPs, there is still a lack of manpower to assist them. “We lacked people who can guide them especially at the (Southern Philippines Medical Center) we will establish an IP desk there where there are liaison officers who will assist the patients and their watchers on how to avail of the government’s health programs,” she said. Codilla will also provide seminars and workshops to IPs who are assisting in community health centers in their respective barangays. National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP) Davao City head Cristito Ingay said his office will fast-track the processing of Codilla’s documents to prevent a vacuum in the position vacated by outgoing IPMR Halila Sudagar,

who bid farewell to the city council last Tuesday. “The NCIP will do its best to complete the documents as early as we can, to prevent a vacuum in the city council,” she said. Ingay said that as soon as the documents are ready, they will be submitted to their regional office for the immediate issuance of a certificate of affirmation. PNA

The mayor said, “there should be a stop to the insanity of these terrorists — or more children will be orphaned, more civilians will be killed, more soldiers will die, and many more facilities and equipment will be burned, setting back development by a hundred years.” The mayor was concerned that if talks are revived it is certain that the NPAs will continue to terrorize government forces and civilians, discharge offensives and unabated destruction, while recruitment of minors, farmers, lumads, workers, and students would continue courtesy of its legal fronts. “We should stop rewarding these terrorists with our

Mindanao,” he said, thanking barangay officials for yielding their unlicensed guns. Tawantawan explained that for most Lanao residents, maintaining a firearm is necessary to protect themselves from armed groups and even Moro secessionist rebels. The peace and order situation in the Lanao provinces, he pointed out, was grim in 2008, when several Lanao towns were attacked by rogue elements within the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF). “But now we have surpassed the crisis with the help of our men in uniform, and during night time, the people here can sleep well,” the mayor said. Tawantawan said they are also optimistic about Duterte’s efforts to restore peace by engaging the MILF and other armed groups in Mindanao to work for peace. He also called on the town’s residents to surrender their unlicensed guns, while keeping their ears on the

Tuesday, April 17, 2018 and the competencies that a Filipino worker must have to ‘survive’ in the future? What kind of educational system will we need to prepare our children? These are critical questions that must be answered to ensure that the Philippines will not be left behind.” The council also aims to tap into international Islamic funds which are currently estimated at US$70.8 billion. It will facilitate the establishment of bilateral arrangements of the Philippines with economies such as Malaysia to secure successful financing of infrastructure projects. “Adequate financing is the lifeblood of infrastructure development in the region. I see the potential of Islamic investments in unlocking infrastructure development hurdles especially in Mindanao,” according to ABAC member Joanne de Asis. Meanwhile, Trade Secretary Ramon Lopez expressed his continued support for the work of ABAC Philippines and shared valuable inputs on digital innovation. “We are excited for the outcomes of ABAC Philippines’ initiatives. As the government consistently pushes for innovation, DTI is committed to assisting the council to ensure that their projects are aligned with our efforts and priorities,” said Sec. Lopez. DTI has assigned conterparts to each of the council’s work program. The agency will also assist in the implementation of ABAC Philippines’ local projects. As the voice of Philippine business in APEC, the council will continue to represent the private sector in the second ABAC meeting to be held in Tokyo, Japan this April. END

country’s growth momentum, create more income opportunities for the poor, and help strengthen the prospects for peace. Currently, 15 percent of the country’s GDP and 40 percent of agricultural production comes from Mindanao, but armed conflict in some areas, constrains Mindanao’s aspirations to accelerate inclusive growth. Just how to address these issues that fuel conflict is another thing to be considered very seriously. These are land ownership disputes, historical injustices, and weak governance at the grassroots level. The government must address these issues through the peace process and other initiatives to improve delivery of social services. On one hand, the reform policies must support job creation and economic opportunity for all Mindanaoans to ensure success of whatever peace-building effort available on the negotiating table. Easier said, but it can be done. What we need is a determined political will.
