PHILIPPINES' CENTURY-OLD CADASTRAL SURVEY SAGA ENDS
Taking pride of a 100% accomplishment, Land Management Bureau (LMB) Acting Director Emelyne V. Talabis said that the cadastral survey of the 1,634 cities and municipalities in the Philippines spearheaded by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) is finally completed.
As mentioned in the sixth and last State of the Nation Address (SONA) of President Benigno ‘Pnoy’ Aquino III last July 27, 2015, he stated, “The Cadastral Survey, which was started in 1913, has been completed by us. It took almost a century for those who came before us to complete 46 percent of this survey. The more than half left to be done, we finished in just five years in government.”
