Philippine Navy seeks speedy delivery of second warship

MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine Navy is trying to speed up the arrival of the country’s second warship, the BRP Ramon Alcaraz.

“That’s what we’re trying to do…to speed up it’s delivery but we don’t want to compromise the things that should be done…as the saying goes haste makes waste,” Navy chief Vice Admiral Alexander Pama told reporters in a phone interview.

A 90-man crew from the Navy who will man the warship are going under training in Charleston, South Carolina since April, he said.

BRP Alcaraz is scheduled to arrive in November. Frances Mangosing, INQUIRER.net
