Gobyerno na ang magpatakbo sa nabangkaroteng Hanjin Heavy Industries and Construction sa Subic, Zambales.

Ito ang naging mungkahi ni Senador Panfilo Lacson kay Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana sa kasagsagan ng pagdepensa ng mambabatas sa badyet ng Department of National Defense sa Senado.

Nai-convert sa Committee of the Whole ang deliberasyon upang mas lumawak ang talakayan sa isyu ng Hanjin.

“What if the Philippine government will just take over Hanjin and bid out to possible partners, private entities?” tanong ni Lacson kay Lorenzana.

β€œThis will mean potential income for the government,” dagdag pa ng mambabatas.

Instead of potentially letting foreign firms do so, it would be better if the Philippine government take over the shipyard of Hanjin Heavy Industries and Construction in Subic, Zambales.

Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson raised this proposal Wednesday during the Senate’s deliberations on the 2019 budget of the Department of National Defense.

Lacson pointed out the government may use “insertions” deleted from the P3.7-trillion proposed 2019 budget, including P75 billion of the Department of Public Works and Highways.

“What if the Philippine government will just take over Hanjin and bid out to possible partners, private entities? This will mean potential income for the government,” said Lacson, who earlier moved to have the Senate constitute itself into a Committee of the Whole to discuss the issue while tackling the DND’s budget.
