PIDS Book 2003-08Infrastructure Development: Experience and Policy Options for the Future
Llanto, Gilberto M.

This book presents in broad strokes a chronicle of infrastructure development in the Philippines in the last 25 years. It covers the infrastructure experience across the Marcos regime to the Estrada (2001) and Arroyo (2003) administration. Its main objective is to flag the gaps and issues for future research, policy analysis and policy formulation. It calls particular attention to several constraints such as large budget deficits faced by the national government, inefficient government implementation of infrastructure projects, unclear policy and regulatory framework for private participation in infrastructure.
