DPWH Drawing the Plans for a Strong Republic Annual Report 2009


Properly-planned infrastructure paired with responsible supervision are the foundations of a strong republic. Through time, the
Department of Public Works and Highway has been consistently playing its vital role in spurring the country’s progress.
With the impending threats brought about by climate change and the continuous meltdown of the world’s largest economies,
the Philippines with its humble resources cannot escape totally unscathed. The theme- Drawing the plans for a Strong Republic
gathers inspiration from DPWH’s collective endeavors to uplift the country. By drawing better plans for public infrastructure and
development, the department paves way towards building a strong republic. The cover, in connection with the theme, presents a master plan blueprint of the country. On the background are various images of public roads, highways and infrastructure— concrete proofs that DPWH works its way to progress and development.

For Mindanao, potentials on fresh fruits, fish, marine products, plantation crops, construction materials and textiles are very encouraging. Thus, it aims at improving its export values in marine and agricultural products, canned pineapple products and textile manufacturing. Lately, tourism industry potential of Mindanao has also benefited from this development.
