MANILA, May 26 (Mabuhay) – Incoming president Rodrigo Duterte on Wednesday said he will not allow the construction of more factories in Metro Manila.

“Manila is already saturated. I will not allow factories anymore in Manila,” he said in a press conference.

“Not only because it is a dead city but because I have to build a new environment for the people,” he added.

The tough-talking president has earlier spoken of his intention to devolve power and distribute wealth from Manila to the other regions in the country.

“I have to relocate them, pero bago marelocate, I have to establish an economic acticity. Mag-economic zone na lang ako, tapos ilagay ko sila doon,” Duterte said. (MNS
