MANILA - Metro Pacific Investments Corp said Friday it was planning a "big" investment in Mindanao, notwithstanding the declaration of martial law due to fighting between government forces and Islamic extremists.

The investment will be on a long-term project, MPIC Chairman Manuel Pangilinan said. He refused to provide additional details.
 
"Expect an announcement soon," Pangilinan told reporters. "Most likely it will proceed, it’s long term."

Pangilinan said he was hopeful tensions in the south would be short-lived .

Metro Pacific currently runs several health institutions in the region including the Davao Doctors hospital.
