The expansion of the Caticlan Jetty Port is on the list of Aklan Governor Joeben Miraflores’ plans.
This was stated by the newly appointed leader of the province during the BFI’s Induction of Officers last week.
Aside from the governor’s request for Senator Drilon’s assistance on the renovation and expansion of Kalibo International Airport, infrastructure programs as well as the passed up Reclamation Project are what he plans to focus on.
Miraflores also acknowledged the BFI’s previous retraction-now-turned-support-move for the reclamation with the condition that it will only be within 2.6 hectares.
The governor is now optimistic that the project will pursue and that there will be an early withdrawal of the TRO which the Supreme Court has previously issued due to environmental issues.
Meanwhile, Miraflores assured the stockholders that he will frequent Boracay to focus on the solutions on the issues in the island.
