"It would be a loan of the national government para matulungan 'yong (to help) Coron at (and) El Nido," Intong noted.

"Inii-study pa nila ng husto ngayon kasi workshops go on para madetermine talaga how much would be ang ilo-loan sa ADB but definitely kailangan natin ng STPs (sewage treatment plants) and water supply sa Coron (They're still studying it thoroughly to determine how much we'll be loaning from the ADB but definitely we need the STPs and water supply in Coron)," he said, adding no specific amount of loan has been identified yet.
"Itong mga components ay pinu-pool nila and then coming up na with the estimates as to how much would be the loan (They're pooling all these components to come up with an estimate as to how much the loan would be)," he added.
