Print

The National Electrification Administration (NEA) showcased its banner programs and projects in the three-day Infrastructure Congress and Expo Philippines (ICEP) at the World Trade Center, Pasay City on May 3-5, 2017.
Various exhibitors both from the government and private sectors joined the event which aimed to provide a vital opportunity to inform the public of the Duterte Administration’s infrastructure plan which will lead to rapid economic growth of the country in the next six years.
Administrator Edgardo R. Masongsong said, “The expo is one way for NEA to inform the public of the significant milestones achieved through government’s Sitio Electrification Program (SEP) and Barangay Line Enhancement Program (BLEP) as well as the strides being undertaken by the Agency on renewable energy and submarine cable energy systems. All of these and more are being undertaken to improve electricity services in far flung areas of the country to serve better the member-consumer-owners (MCOs).”
Senate President Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III was guest speaker during the Opening Ceremonies. He said that the administration of President Rodrigo R. Duterte involves changing the landscape of the Philippines as it ushers to the “Golden Age of Infrastructure”. He also stated that to do this, the government allocated PhP500 billion, lodged in the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) and the Department of Transportation (DOTr) for 2017, although the plan is to spend PhP7 Trillion for the entire six years.
“The government is willing to spend more than 5% of its gross domestic product (GDP) on infrastructure projects. I appeal to the members of the private sector who are participating in the expo to give the Filipinos their money’s worth by cutting and eliminating corruption, wastes and wasteful decisions and useless projects. Magtulungan tayo”, Senator Pimentel added.
Meanwhile, Department of National Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana gave his assurance that the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and the Philippine National Police (PNP) will secure the accomplishment of the flagship projects, especially those being done and will be done in the rural areas, especially in the NPA-infested areas.
On energy systems, National Renewable Energy Board (NREB) Chairperson Jose Layug, Jr. talked about 2010-2016 energy updates, available renewable energy resources, energy mix and resource production as well as the supply and demand in the country as part of the solution in the power industry problems facing the country today. Electrification is one of the priority projects undertaken by the present government as part its nation building.###
