The Japanese government has turned over equipment to to Philippines to improve electric power distribution in the Bangsamoro.
“On August 14, Embassy of Japan’s Minister Makoto Iyori attended the turn over ceremony of Equipment for Power Distribution in Bangsamoro Area,” the Japanese embassy said.
It explained that the project aims to increase the possible power transmission capacity by approximately 1.4 times while reducing power distribution loss, length of power outages, and other such problems in Bangsamoro Area including Zamboanga and the Sulu archipelago.
“Not only will it stabilize power supply, but more importantly, result in the improvement of social services for local residents to reap the dividends of peace that come with the progress of the peace process,” it added.
“It is our highest hope that this project, along with other continuing gestures of support from Japan, will reinforce and accelerate the full transition of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao and lead the Bangsamoro people to a better life they deserve,” it added.
