FINAL SENTIMENTAL JOURNEY AS SPEAKER IN CEBU. SGMA visited Cebu today on her final sentimental journey as Speaker.

In a media briefing, the Marina reported that as a result of her initiatives as Speaker arising from the House's oversight functions, a total of 19 new missionary Roro routes were established in different parts of the country this year. Four of the 19 are already operational while 15 are just waiting for the arrival of the ships that will service the routes. It was also revealed that nine more new missionary routes will be opened based on the recommendation of the shipping Industry. SGMA said she is happy that the Roro project has been revived by the present adminstration and that she is extremely delighted and honored to have helped in lowering the cost of goods, boosting tourism and facilitating travel around the country through the Roro System which she established when she was President in 2003.
