Lamitan officials led by its Mayor, Rose U. Furigay, presented a plan by the local government unit to establish an economic zone in Lamitan city.

The plan was presented during the recently held Ecozone Summit in Davao.

The Lamitan Ecozone is envisioned to be an Agro- industrial economic zone located along the coast of the city.

The project is expected to encompass the barangays of Kalugusan, Luuk Sumbang, Mallong, Buahan and Balas.

Furigay said that the proposed area is ideal for the construction of a seaport, an important component in establishing an economic zone.

The area is facing Zamboanga city.

The project is expected to uplift the socio-economic condition of the people of Lamitan, Furigay said. (Allen Abastillas)
