The Department of Public Works and Highways in the Ilocos Region (DPWH-1) confirmed that the ongoing “Build Build Build” program will be sustained under the administration of President elect Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.

“A brighter future awaits Region 1 as the economic team of the incoming administration is assured to continue smart infrastructure development in the region,” DPWH-1 assistant regional director Emmanuel Diaz said during the State of the Region’s Development Conference held in San Fernando City, La Union on Wednesday, June 29.

In his last state of the region address, outgoing Vigan City Mayor Juan Carlo Medina has highlighted the BBB program’s significant improvement of the Ilocos Region’s economy, especially amid the pandemic.

“Our economy is now recovering and becoming vibrant once again,” the Politiko said, citing the 5% growth of the region’s economy and employment in 2021.
