S Korea extends financial help for construction of new Cebu

Finance Assistant Secretary Maria Edita Tan of the Philippines was quoted as saying the Export-Import Bank of Korea (Kexim) had approved the New Cebu International Container Port as one of the projects it would finance through ODA.
The South Korean government, through Kexim, has offered a total of $1 billion in concessional loans over a six-year period to finance key infrastructure programmes in the Philippines.
The National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) had approved the proposal to build the port, which will be in Consolacion, slightly to the north of the current port. Manila and Seoul are set to finalise the framework for the loan agreement in August.
The project is expected to lessen the congestion in the existing Cebu International Port in Cebu City and reduce vessel waiting time. The port is to be built on a reclaimed 25-hectare island and will almost double the container yard capacity from 7,373 TEU to 14,400 TEU.
