CLARK FREEPORT, Pampanga—The Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) is determined to build the Clark Green City which is considered as its “largest and the most abitious project yet.”
BCDA president and chief executive Vivencio Dizon said the 9,450-hectare state of the art metropolis which is to be located within the Clark Special Economic Zone (CSEZ) will be the Philippines’ first true green and gifted city.
“It aims to promote inclusive growth that could boost the country’s global competitiveness,” he said.
Dizon is confident that the Clark Green City has a strong potential to become the premier city of the Philippines as it is designed to cater to government agencies, businesses, educational organizations, research institutions, agro-industries and tourism.
He added that a new government center is also being planned to put up in Clark Green City.
Tentatively, he said the master plan of Clark Green City is set to be finished in June of this year.
Meanwhile, Clark Development Corporation (CDC) president and CEO Noel Manankil said the Clark Freeport Zone has 895 locators with 93,089 workers and has a total of USD3.32 billion exports since December 2016.
