PHILIPPINES-INFRASTRUCTURE-ECONOMY


TO GO WITH AFP STORY: Philippines-economy-infrastructure,FOCUS by Joel Guinto

In this photo taken October 9, 2014, workers are working on one of about a hundred projects to control flooding in Metro Manila. Department of Public Works and Highways Secretary Rogelio Singson said “all these interventions are already going on, but they cannot be finished overnight.” The frequent flooding is just one of the many signs of the decaying infrastructure in the Philippines that has resulted in massive losses due to traffic jams, congestion and poor services. Although the Philippine economy is in the midst of a recovery after years as Asia's laggard, the infrastructure problem threatens to derail this recovery. AFP PHOTO / Jay DIRECTO
