Reelectionist Sen. JV Ejercito bats for the creation of 'Luzon growth triangle'

REELECTIONIST Senator JV "Mr. Healthcare" Ejercito on Friday batted for the development of a "Luzon growth triangle" which would stimulate rapid economic boom as well as sustain growth in the region.

"I have been very vocal in pushing for the creation of a 'Luzon growth triangle' composed mainly of Subic, Manila, and Batangas. This will not only bring economic growth in the region, which will benefit the whole country also, but also create jobs for our workers," he said in a statement.

He said the growth triangle should also include the full development of Clark International Airport, a modern railway system, and vital road networks "to ensure seamless delivery of goods, services, and people."

Ejercito said Luzon should evolve into an "investment magnet" that would attract both foreign and local investors.

"I am really for massive infrastructure program and modern railway system. I am running now for my reelection because I really want to push for these," he said.

He added: "One of the reasons why I would want to run (again) kasi gusto ko talagang tutukan ito. I am the only one that is really passionately talking about the railway system, the modernization plan of airports at kapag nanalo ako, talagang tututukan natin 'yan."
