Japan will be establishing a 2 billion dollars worth liquefied natural gas facility in the Philippines to provide a cheaper alternative energy source, this was bared by newly appointed Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque on November 2 in an interview with PTV4.
“Mayroon din po tayong 2 billion dollars na liquefied natural gas storage facility na gagawin ng mga hapon diyan sa South,” said Roque as one of the positive results of President Rodrigo Duterte’s recent visit to Japan.
“At isa po sa pinaka-importanteng offer ng mga hapon ay iyong paggawa ng isang subway ‘no, dito sa Pilipinas na siguradong maglulutas ng problemang trapiko natin sa ating bayan,” he added.
Roque said that the visit resulted to 6 billion dollar investment. This is aside from loan packages pledged by the Japanese government.
“Napakabuti po ng resulta ng trip to Japan Mayroon po tayong six (6) billion dollar investment nanakuha galing Japan,” he said.
