21Sangley Airport Development ProjectThe DOTr finds it necessary to improve the services to the public by providing another terminal to cater future passenger/cargo increase. The airport has an available area that can still accommodate a terminal building or hangarage with an area of 3,560 sqm.
The original design of Sangley Airport dictates that the facilities to be provided will be used for General Aviation operation. With the current government trust to have the airport open for commercial operation, there is a need to expand the area of the PTB or Hangarage that can accomodate aircrafts for Cargo within the available area.
The DOTr with the concurrence of CAAP intend to provide additional Hangarage within the available area instead of expanding the PTB.

32Development and Use of Nanobiopesticide for the Control of Fusarium Wilt on High Value CropsDelayed screenhouse testing of nanobiopesticide against Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense Tropical Race 1 (Foc TR1)
Tissue-cultured Latundan plantlets are needed for screenhouse testing of nanobiopesticide against Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense Tropical Race 1 (Foc TR1). However, the National Plant Genetic Resources Laboratory (NPGRL) of IPB is having a hard time propagating the needed plantlets due to contamination. There is no available Latundan plantlets in other plant tissue culture laboratories and nurseries.
The project's request for three-month extension without additional funding was approved in order for the project to catch-up the delayed activities.
