戦地マラウィ1年以内に復興完遂?

2017年5月23日にフィリピン国軍及びフィリピン警察とISILとの武力衝突がマラウィ市で発生し、10月23日にフィリピン政府が終結宣言を行いました。
この間、マラウィ市は壊滅的な被害を受け、国内避難民は最大で約36万人に膨れ上がり,4年が経過した今でも多くの国内避難民が存在しており,マラウィ市及びその周辺地域の一刻も早い復旧・復興が望まれています。

 

復興作業は戦地となっていたこともあり難しい作業が多くありましたが計画的に進められており。今月23日で4年を向かえ、ロケ氏は「ドゥテルテ大統領の任期中に復興が迎えられる」と語りました。
任期まで後1年ほど残っていますが、マラウィが本当の意味で理想的な場所に到達するのは簡単ではないし、時間もかかるかもしれないとも言いましたが、かつての姿以上の輝きを持つまでは支援をやめないと決意を再表明しました。

 

マラウィはラオナ湖に隣接し、国立公園や大学なども整備されており再建後の可能性も十分にある魅力的な土地です。
各国も再建に資金援助を行い、いち早い復興が望まれています。

Marawi’s complete rehab by end of Duterte’s term assured — Roque

Malacañang expressed confidence that the rehabilitation of the war-torn city of Marawi can be completed by the end of President Duterte’s term.

Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque made the statement as the country marked the fourth year of the start of the Marawi Siege on May 23.

In his press briefing on Monday, Roque said the Duterte administration can still fulfill its promise to completely rehabilitate Marawi despite delays.

“Ang pangako po ng Presidente babangon muli po ang Marawi at ang pangako po niya ay sa kanyang termino (The President promised that Marawi will rise again and that it will happen within his term),” he said.

“We have roughly a year bago po matapos ang termino ng Presidente (before the term of the President ends) and I think the target can be met– that Marawi can be completely rebuilt at the end of the term of the President,” he added.

In October last year, President Duterte told residents of Marawi that rehabilitating the war-torn city was not an easy task, especially with issues beyond terrorism that were yet to be resolved.

He, however, assured them that the government was already working on rebuilding Marawi.

“You know, Marawi is not that easy. We started it and we are at it already because yung clearing of explosives ang matagal (the clearing of explosives is what delays the process),” he said.

‘It might take–it’s not easy to do that–it might take some time before we can really reach the ideal place that we’d call home,” he added.

The President said the government has the money to rebuild Marawi and they will continue spending the funds allocated for it.

“The money is there, do not worry. We will continue to spend until such time that Marawi is rebuilt to its former glory,” he said.

Marawi City was the battleground of the five-month war between pro-ISIS terrorists and the government. The country will commemorate the fourth year of its liberation from the terrorists on October 23.
