Korea-to-Finance-Panay-Negros-Guimaras-Bridge
Formal signing ceremony between South Korea and the Philippines for the financing of the most awaited Western Visayas mega infrastructure Panay-Guimaras-Negros Bridge.

Cost

The cost for the Panay-Guimaras segment is P65.7 billion and P123.82 billion for Guimaras-Negros segment.

December 2021 update

According to the Department of Finance, Korea is to extend the financing for Panay-Guimaras-Negros Bridge.

The (South) Koreans have committed an official development assistance (ODA) loan to the Philippines through the KEXIM Bank – Economic Development Cooperation Fund (EDCF) to finance the detailed engineering design (DED) of this immense flagship bridge project.

The loan will be formalized with the signing ceremony scheduled in December 2021.

“It’s taking too long”

Senators were disappointed at the inattention, lost economic opportunities, inefficiency, delayed improvement in livelihoods, as they spoke to NEDA Secretary Karl Chua regarding the delays for this Western Visayas bridge. “It’s crazy” and it’s taking too long.

Unlike the Panay-Guimaras-Negros bridge, the 8.5km Cebu-Cordova Bridge is being constructed at a very fast pace, which began in April 2018 and is expected to open Q1 2022.

Senator Drilon is pessimistic that this will not materialize under the Duterte Administration. (: But the formal signing was done Dec 2021)
