Public Works Secretary Mark Villar and South Korean Ambassador Han Dong-man on May 31 led the groundbreaking of the P997.5-million Samar Pacific Coastal Road and Simora-Palapag Road project.

The road project is funded via a loan from the South Korean government.

Han said the loan is South Korea’s way of repaying the Philippines’ help during the Korean war.

“The government of Korea will remain to fulfill its commitment and will continue to pay our debts. This groundbreaking is a symbol of our strong partnership and friendship,” he said.

“This project is also to show our commitment to end poverty and promote regional economic growth in the Philippines,” Han added.
