Port Manager Raul Oblenda of the Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) was assured of a gigantic funding for the development of ports in the province.

The port official told the Chronicle that earmarked for release is P223 million, as approved by PPA General Manager Alfonso Cusi at central PPA offices in Manila.

The city port will surely become the country's showcase of "tourist port," Oblenda said as further improvement of the Tagbilaran port will continue this year.

The modern board walk, complete with lighting facilities will transform the reclaimed portion like "Roxas Boulevard" where coffee shops and restaurants will be put in place.

Other projects being pipelined are the construction of the Port Management Office building, 15,000 sq. meter reclamation and fencing of the port.

Meanwhile, PPA has recently completed the air-conditioned passenger terminal building at Jagna Port. The transit shed and reclamation of the Tubigon port will follow and the putting up of breakwater at Catagbacan and Jagna ports. - 2004 News Archive in the Bohol Chronicle
