According to Abella, the Duterte administration has bared plans for the construction a network of roads, bridges, railways and airports.

“Ten months after, we now have an aggressive infrastructure program, which we call Build Build Build, which aims to construct a network of roads, bridges, railways and airports to spur economic growth and lower poverty,” he said.
