Lodi si Lee Kuan Yew! Isko Moreno wants Singapore’s public housing program replicated in Manila
Manila Mayor Isko Moreno wants to replicate Singapore’s vertical housing program in the city to resolve the problem of homelessness.
In his weekly Facebook address, Moreno noted the high success rate of the housing program started by the late Singapore Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew.
“Eighty percent doon ay nakatira sa pinagawang bahay ng pamahalaan or what you call HDB o home development board, yun yung batas na ginagawa natin ngayon,” he said.
Moreno said there are vertical housing projects lined up, aside from the ongoing construction of Tondominium and Binondominium.
The mayor said he wants to include working class Manila residents among the beneficiaries of the government’s housing program.
“Ang good news, sa ating mga incoming and future projects hindi na lamang ang squatter ang ating lilingunin, priority sila definitely, pero iniisip namin na itong pabahay na ito pwede maisama rin natin yung mga working class, yung mga nangungupahan,” Moreno said.
