TUGUEGARAO CITY -- President Rodrigo Duterte is scheduled to visit Port Irene in Santa Ana and the Lal-lo airport in Cagayan province Wednesday to personally witness the condemnation and public destruction of illegally imported luxury cars at the Freeport.
Some 855 contraband luxury vehicles are impounded in a warehouse at Port Irene and at least 14 of these cars will be wrecked during the presidential visit.
The Chief Executive will also inspect the facilities of the newly completed Lal-lo airport worth PHP1.657 billion.
Cagayan Economic Zone Authority (CEZA) administrator and chief executive officer lawyer Raul Lamino will brief the President on the airport’s latest developments as well as the remaining equipment needed for the airport’s full operations, including the issuance of permit from the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP).
Lambino said the new airport is being readied to receive its first two international commercial flights from Macau, China on March 23.
President Duterte is also expected to address at least 300 CEZA locators, local officials, farmers and community folks from Lal-Lo and Santa Ana municipalities during the visit. (PNA)
