President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo visited Guimaras Wednesday to turn over projects expected to spur the development of the province and hasten its recovery after the 2006 Solar I oil spill incident. Guimaras will receive more or less P12-million worth of projects ranging from a library hub, classrooms and livelihood programs. President Arroyo inaugurated the P7-million library hub constructed by Petron Corporation containing some 36,000 books donated by the San Francisco Public Library, Saudi Aramco, Bato Balani Foundation, and other donors. President Arroyo likewise witnessed the signing of an agreement between the South East Asian Fisheries Development Center Aquaculture Department (SEAFDEC-AQD) for the establishment of a mariculture project in Igang, Nueva Valencia, the worst hit municipality during the tragic oil spill.
