Boracay hosts PhilWater 2014

The Philippines successfully hosted the 22nd International Conference and Exhibition on Water Resource Management, also known as PhilWater 2014, which was held recently in the world famous Boracay island resort with some 1,000 delegates in attendance.

Addressing the delegates, Secretary Emilio Abaya Jr. of the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOST) urged the water sector to try the public-private partnership (PPP) model in the implementation of water supply and sanitation projects which he said has been successfully done in the transportation and communication sectors.
