Plan to protect Benham Rise urged
MetadataShow full item record
Senate President Pro Tempore Ralph Recto is calling on the Duterte administration to come up with a comprehensive strategy to protect Benham Rise from foreign incursion. Recto was reacting to reports of a Chinese survey ship spotted in sea off the provinces of Aurora and Isabela. Recto said that without a protection strategy, Benham Rise could easily be taken over not only by poachers but foreign countries interested in exploring the plateau’s marine and mineral resources.
