Boracay rehabilitation off to'good start'
MetadataShow full item record
Rehabilitation work in Boracay got off to a “good start” with the overwhelming support and cooperation from its residents and stakeholders, according to Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu. “We anticipated confusion and disturbance among the residents and stakeholders but thank God there was none. We’re very happy [because the people were happy with the closure that was enforced on April 26],” Cimatu over the weekend said in an interview with state-run radio station dzRB. He added that about 98 percent of Boracay residents and business owners have volunteered and agreed to demolish on their own structures they had built illegally.
