Under the leadership of the Duterte administration, Executive Order No. 74 was promulgated which transferred the Philippine Reclamation Authority to the Office of the President and delegated to the PRA Governing Board the power of the President to approve reclamation projects.   

The issuance of EO 74 aims "to rationalize the approval process for reclamation projects towards an economically and environmentally sustainable resource development.”   

With this, PRA has successfully engaged in the achievement of a national development agenda through its financial, social, and environmental contributions to the nation by building legacy islands.

In the past six years, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte and the entire government have forged a greater picture of the Philippines for the benefit of the Filipino people.
