CILA members’ meet showcases Clark’s economic power

CLARK FREEPORT ZONE – Clark’s sole unifying body for its investors proved that it is a vital community in this economic zone.

The Clark Investors and Locators Association (CILA) held its 2017 second quarterly general membership meeting (GMM) at the Midori Hotel and Casino on July 26, 2017.

Almost 200 investors from all over Clark, both foreign and local, gathered and established business networks. CILA’s executive board also invited the Clark Development Corporation (CDC) and the Philippine Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA).

As a highlight of this quarter’s GMM, CILA inducted six new members, namely Cebu Pacific Corp., China Banking Corp., INAEC North Aviation Corp., Le Mans Stellar Motor Corp., Metro Jet Engineering Clark, and Premium Shield Insurance.

In a bid to reach more people, CILA launched its official Facebook fan page, which would serve as the organization’s main public information platform. The Facebook fan page had a live coverage of the GMM on its pilot airing.

“Clark has arrived!”

CDC grabbed this opportunity to present Clark’s current condition. CDC Chairman Jose De Jesus talked about the ease of doing business in Clark and the incentives that the government offers.

“Clark has arrived,” said CILA President Josh Go as he complemented De Jesus’ presentation about business prospects in Clark.

Clark will soon be connected to Metro Manila through a modern railway system. Those traveling from Clark to Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) and vice-versa will be assured of one-hour travel time once this railway has been in operation. Another railway will be built in Clark that will connect this economic zone with Subic.

As for Clark’s own airport, it will be renovated to follow state-of-the-art standards.
