Bumigay na Duterte! Tieng’s Solar City reclamation project gets green light from Palace

President Rodrigo Duterte’s hardline stance against reclamation projects in Manila Bay seems to have softened as the end of his term nears.

According to news reports, Malacañang has given the green light to the Tieng family’s Manila Solar City reclamation project.

Quoting Medialdea, the Philippine Star said Malacañang had no objections to the Philippine Reclamation Authority’s plan to approve the 148-hectare “smart city” project of the Manila Goldcoast Development Corporation.

The approval of the Tieng’s reclamation project marks a turnaround from Duterte’s previous declaration that he will block all reclamation projects at Manila Bay, which his administration has been keen on rehabilitating.

Now it seems that Duterte has had a change of heart and is finally allowing the decades-old project to proceed.
