THE government should further intensify its campaign to encourage private sector infusion into the Strong Republic Nautical Highway (SRNH) project.

“The private sector should not only invest on construction and acquisition of ro-ro vessels, but also on terminals and ports, warehouses and even industrial zones,” said Marita Jimenez, Office of the President’s Priority Programs and Official Development Assistance Projects Secretary, at last week’s SRNH Conference facilitated by the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry at the Hotel Intercontinental.

According to her, some business people in Bataan still hesitate to fork out funds for the project because the facilities required to accommodate ro-ro ships are insufficient.
