MANILA, Philippines (UPDATE) - Government is trying to approve the extension of the LRT to Dasmarinas, Cavite.

This will be a 19-kilometer construction project under the public-private partnership (PPP) program.

It will start from Bacoor, where the LRT is being extended to by the Metro Pacific-Ayala Group under a PPP.

Officials are also working to include two more projects in next month's NEDA Investment Coordinating Committee meeting, the Batangas-Manila natural gas pipeline and a program to upgrade equipment in all NAIA terminals.

The ICC is the last step before final approval by the NEDA Board chaired by President Aquino.

PPP Center executive director Cosette Canilao says they are waiting for the agencies in charge of the projects - the DOTC and the Philippine National Oil Company. - ANC
