From Presidential Spokesperson Ernie Abella – On renewed confidence in Mindanao

Government is investing heavily in infrastructure as part of the reconstruction and rehabilitation program of Marawi, which in turn is expected to drive growth and create more jobs for people.

We expect business and consumer confidence in Mindanao to pick up with the conclusion of the rebellion in Marawi.

The rehabilitation of the Islamic City will contribute to peace-building efforts as economic opportunities open, including restoration of livelihood for the Maranaos, so they can start rebuilding their lives.

Together, let us help build back Marawi, and a strong united nation.
