Master Plan Study of Bohol Integrated Area Development (BIAD) Project

Master Plan Study of Bohol Integrated Area Development Project Cover

In response to the request of the Government of the Republic of the Philippines, the Government of Japan has decided to conduct a survey on the Master Plan of Bohol Integrated Area Development Project and entrusted the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) to carry out the work. The JICA dispatched a survey team headed by Dr. Hidetoshi Matsuo, the special adviser to Pacific Consultants International and Mitsubishi Research Institute Inc., consisting of 14 experts in relevant fields from July 10 to September 29, 1979. The survey team conducted a reconnaissance study, collected the necessary data and information, and exchanged views with the Philippine officials concerned.

After completing further studies and taking into consideration the comments of the Philippine officials concerned, the survey team has compiled this Master Plan for the Bohol Integrated Area Development for submission to the Philippine Government.

I hope that this report will contribute to the Philippines officials concerned for their whole-hearted cooperation and courtesies extended to the survey team.
