Cebu-Bohol Bridge to Boost Economy Under Pres. Rody Duterte


The Cebu-Bohol Friendship Bridge once realized under the administration of Pres. Rody Duterte will have a big economic impact to both provinces of Central Visayas. Politicians from both provinces are conducting studies to pushed the project into realization with the help of the Duterte administration.


According to Aumentado, Bohol Board Member Nino Bonie and several second district mayors were in Cebu City to conduct a "Bohol 2nd District Development Framework" meeting at Quest Hotel.

Some of the most prominent economic leaders in the Province like NEDA 7 Director Efren Carreon and Dr. Joel Elumba of the Department of Agriculture (DA) were the resource persons during the meeting.

The NEDA Official in Region 7 also noted that there will be no more stranded passengers in Cebu and Bohol even if ship trips are cancelled during typhoons because, with a bridge, vehicles can travel freely.


Although the travel time between the two provinces is only from one to three hour by seas, the Philippine Coast Guard implemented the policy to prevent accidents.

The proposed Cebu-Bohol Friendship Bridge will pass through Cordova and Jetafe, Bohol, was endorsed by the late political icon of Bohol former governor Erico Aumentado. 

According to Aumentado the proposed Cebu-Bohol Bridge was already endorsed by the Regional Development Council (RDC) 7 and was declared pending when it reached the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA).

Former Cordova Mayor Adelino Sitoy, who is now a presidential legislative liaison to President Duterte strongly supports the realization of the proposed Cebu-Bohol Friendship Bridge because this will complement the coming Mactan-Cebu third Bridge that will connect Cebu City and Cordova in Mactan Island.
