View in Online Reader

While the geographic features of the Philippine archipelago have historically hindered the creation of an efficient transport network, given the obstacles to increased productivity and growth posed by the country’s many islands and congested road system, the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte has made infrastructure development a top priority. As a result, an array of major transport projects are being rolled out across the country under the Build, Build, Build programme, whereby the government has set about accelerating infrastructure investment, focusing on projects to integrate the archipelago’s islands and stimulate development, including major upgrades to road, railway and port systems. This chapter contains interviews with Dennis Uy, Founder and Chairman, Chelsea Logistics; and Steve Dicdican, CEO, Mactan-Cebu International Airport.
