Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu recently led the groundbreaking of the first phase of an enterprise development project with Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corp. (MMPC) in Bangui.
Cimatu said the project is a joint venture with MMPC to rehabilitate 100 hectares of forestland in Bangui via sustainable integrated area development (SIAD).
MMPC will be funding funding for SIAD initiatives approved by the DENR.
“Bangui’s initiatives to sustain its local tourism industry hinges well on its people’s desire to harness and protect its ecological condition,” Cimatu said.
He also said the local government and the private sector must continue to work together to attain inclusive growth.#
