Road-widening projects and beach clean-ups are just some of the day-to-day scenes in Boracay.

Manila (CNN Philippines Life) — In an exclusive interview with CNN Philippines, Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu talks to CNN Philippines’ Senior Anchor Pinky Webb in Boracay about the current state of island’s rehabilitation. Cimatu has said that the public can expect a better and a more organized Boracay.

Webb also discusses the road-widening projects with the Department of Public Works and Highways Assistant Regional Director Al Fruto ahead of the island’s reopening on Oct. 26. Residents of Boracay have also been seen to help in the clean up — be it in the shoreline or in the paved roads.
