MANILA, Philippines — The groundbreaking ceremony for the rehabilitation of the most affected parts of Marawi City is in April.
On Monday, February 12, developers who are interested to participate in the rehabilitation should submit their unsolicited proposals to the government.
Task Force Bangon Marawi said around six have already expressed their interest including groups from China and Malaysia.
“Based on the informal communications relayed to us, foreign companies have signified their intention to participate in the master development of Marawi coming from China and Malaysia,” said Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC) Task Force Bangon Marawi Secretary-General Usec. Falconi Millar.
The technical working group of the Task Force Bangon Marawi will study the unsolicited proposals for one week and the bidding process for the rehabilitation project will undergo the Swiss challenge system.
It means, after selecting the best proposal, the government will look for another party which can challenge it and offer it for a lower price but with the same quality.
Meanwhile, the local government of Marawi City welcomes the decision of the Supreme Court to uphold the constitutionality of the extension of martial law in Mindanao for one year.
They believe this is beneficial for the city, especially on its reconstruction and rehabilitation.
“Tayo po ay naniniwala na makakatulong po especially in addressing itong sinasabi nating the possibilities of recruitment of this would be members of ISIS-inspired groups so yan po ay malaking tulong po,” said Marawi City Mayor Majul Usman Gandamra.
(We believe that this will help us especially in addressing the possibilities of recruitment of this would be members of ISIS-inspired groups. So, it is a big help.) — Rosalie Coz | UNTV News and Rescue
