MVP vows investments, aid for Capiz

ROXAS City – Business mogul Manny V. Pangilinan (MVP) vowed to help Capiz recover from super typhoon Yolanda devastations and pour investments particularly in utilities and health sectors.

In a meeting with Capiz local officials led by Victor A. Tanco and Roxas City mayor Angel Alan Celino last Feb. 18, 2014, the chairperson of MVP Group of Companies assured he will help Capiz rebuild houses of typhoon Yolanda survivors and provide livelihood assistance.

Celino said MVP is interested to invest in power and water supplies as well as in putting up a hospital here.

MVP also pledged to donate fishing boat made of fiber glass to fishermen who lost their fishing equipment to typhoon Yolanda, Tanco said.

MVP is also interested to put up palm oil plantation to provide livelihood to Capiceños, the governor added.

Tanco presented to MVP the province’s Post-Yolanda Recovery Plan as approved by the National Economic and Development Authority.
MVP is the chairperson of the PLDT, TV5, Philex Mining, and Metro Pacific Investment Corporation.

The meeting was facilitated by Capiceña Judy Roxas-Araneta, the mother of Interior Secretary Mar Roxas II. Also included in the Capiz delegation were First District Rep. Antonio del Rosario, Provincial Administrator Jose Villanueva, Acting Provincial Engineer Edgar Agana, Provincial Agriculturist Sylvia dela Cruz, Roxas City licensing consultant Carmen Andrade, former board member Remia Fuentes-Bartolome, Trade and Industry provincial director Ermelinda Pollentes, businessmen Jose Nery “Bubbles” Ong and Emmanuel “Tawi” Billones.

Meanwhile, Tanco is hopeful that Capiz will fully recover from the super typhoon devastations before his term ends in 2016.

Tanco has set three top priorities for the recovery and rehabilitation plan, namely: shelter assistance, rebuilding of livelihood and rehabilitation of infrastructures like schools, roads, bridges, among others.

The province posted P8.865 billion worth of damages to infrastructures, agriculture and fishery sectors. (Felipe Celino/The Daily Guardian)
