Saving Manila Bay
MetadataShow full item record
In last week’s Kapihan sa Manila Bay, we continued our focused discussions on the rehabilitation of Manila Bay. We have invited Manila City Administrator Atty. Erickson “Jojo” Alcovendaz, Jennifer Rufo of Maynilad Water Services Inc. and Jeric Sevilla of Manila Water Co. Inc. whose respective offices are among the members of the newly created Manila Bay Rehabilitation Task Force. Created under Administrative Order (AO) No. 16 that President Rodrigo Duterte signed on Feb. 19, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) headed by Secretary Roy Cimatu was designated as its lead agency. President Duterte also designated Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Eduardo Año and Department of Tourism (DOT) Secretary Berna Romulo-Puyat as vice-chairpersons of the Task Force.
