Fishers not opposed to new airport
MetadataShow full item record
Fishermen here expressed no opposition to the proposed P700-billion Aerotropolis project being pushed by beverage giant San Miguel Corp., saying they could learn new livelihood skills should they be displaced. Polluted waters due to rain and river runoffs from Bulacan towns that drain toward the Manila Bay had discouraged fishing here, according to Rico Liwanag, chair of the Bulakan Municipal Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Management Council. The investment coordination committee of the National Economic and Development Authority had approved the development of the airport, spanning 1,168 hectares (ha) and a city complex to be built on a 2,500-ha property here.
