In 2017 alone, three airports were inaugurated namely Puerto Princesa Airport, it can accommodate 1.9 million passengers annually; the new terminal building of Mactan Airport and the La-Lo Airport to name a few.



Here's the Complete Report of the DOTr:

When the administration of President Duterte took over, people had their eyes specifically on the Department of Transportation— this time under the leadership of the equally-strong-willed businessman turned public servant, Arthur P. Tugade.

The DOTr came in at really a bad time. People were already impatient, tired, and hopeless. The country’s transportation system was always in the news, mostly for the wrong reasons.

For the past two years, the new DOTr changed and continues to change that.

The DOTr has been finding ways to enhance mobility and connectivity in the country. There is the boldest transportation infrastructure under the “Build, Build, Build” Program, and the policies and initiatives that are going to transform the current state of our country’s public transportation system.

With President Duterte and Secretary Tugade at the helm, people can sit and watch how the DOTr will turn things around.
