OT: He is one of the most prominent Filipino-Chinese around. Sobrang dami ng honorary chairmanship ng tao na to. Old school gentleman.

Aside from founding AIM, he is also one of the founders of the famous accounting firm SGV.

Yeah sorry, hindi ko kilala. But it's good to know that he is famous and contributing to the Philippine economy by creating more job for the people. Each time I would visit there in the Philippines. I usually just pay attention with the surroundings and the new developments as well as the vacation spots more or less, so, movie stars, celebrities and prominent business tycoons unless they are the usual obvious, I don't really notice it.

I went to Singapore last Monday (Feb 13) and I used NAIA Terminal 1 (for my flight to Singapore via Jetstar. In fairness, maganda na sa paningin ko ang airport. Friendly na rin ang mga staff. We were assigned at Gate 15. Naku, hagdanan lang at kawawa ang tita ko dahil Senior Citizen na sya, hindi gaanong makababa ng maayos.

Gov’t in talks with Takenaka for more work at NAIA-3

Gov’t in talks with Takenaka for more work at NAIA-3

0 Email0 0 ShareThisNew



THE GOVERNMENT may again tap Japanese contractor Takenaka Corp., which has complained of not receiving payment for the unfinished Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3 (NAIA-3), for more work on the facility if talks on costing go well, a Cabinet official yesterday said.

Gov’t gains ground in airport ownership

“Our negotiation with Takenaka is in good direction,” Transportation department Secretary Manuel A. Roxas III said in a press briefing yesterday.

“The $20-30 million we were previously negotiating on the costing and pricing [has been cut] to more or less on the $10 million,” Mr. Roxas claimed, referring to the payment for an additional 23 jobs that range from baggage handling system’s flight information displays, and a local area network.

“It is expected that in a couple of weeks, we will reach the best price from Takenaka and we will know if we will let them complete the construction... or the government will be the one that will execute the construction,” Mr. Roxas said.

Takenaka was the primary subcontractor of Philippine International Air Terminals Co., Inc. (Piatco), the builder of NAIA-3, which had filed suit against the government over the cancellation of its contract and the expropriation of the facility.

The NAIA-3 contract, awarded to Piatco in 1997 during the Estrada administration, was declared irregular by the Arroyo government in 2002.

Takenaka has joined in the dispute and is also seeking compensation.

However, Mr. Roxas earlier said that Takenaka might be asked to finish its job as long as the service comes at a reasonable price, according to earlier reports.

Meanwhile, in the event that the government and Takenaka will not reach into an agreement, Mr. Roxas said delivery and construction of the 23 systems would be bid out.

“The government can do the 23 systems, but we don’t have the capacity do the integration,” he said.

Mr. Roxas had said talks with Takenaka had been made possible after a Pasay City Regional Trial Court (RTC) last in October last year allowed the government to set up an escrow account for compensation determined in decision issued earlier this year.

In May, the Pasay RTC ruled the government owed Piatco $175.78 million for the NAIA-3’s expropriation, only a fifth of the builder’s claim of $846.42 million and less than half of a special Board of Commissioners’ recommendation that the consortium be paid $376.14 million.

Mr. Roxas said that the government is ready to pay the $175 million, but Piatco is still contesting the amount in court.

German firm Fraport AG, a major investor of the Piatco consortium,had said it would also claim compensation for the facility. -- Cliff Harvey C. Venzon

I hope SEAir gets another competitor on the Manila Batanes Route...airfares there are so expansive because they have monopoly using they're 19 seater Dorniers. Its been said both Airphils and Cebupac refuses to fly as even theyre Q400 and ATR-72 are too big and they may not be able to fill it up on the way to Batanes let alone on flights back as even SEAair does NOT always have a full load on they're Dorniers on the way back to Manila.

Unless Skypasada can get larger aircrafts i wont be comfortable flying on they're aircrafts from Manila to Batanes.

Also, I think its a one way in-one way out runway. Quite risky for bigger craft if there is a tailwind.

Flown with SEAIR from Manila to Basco and back. Surprisingly the ride was smoother than I've expected. I also prefer that Batanes wont be open up for mass tourism. Batanes sits on a very delicate ecosystem, it's also a protected area. I think they should consider building a niche for luxury tourism instead.

We have to understand, not all destinations are created equal. God forbid they turn Batanes into Puerto Galera.

^ I wouldn't want batanes to have mass tourism anyway. that's one of its appeal beside being unique...but It would be nice if SEAir has a competitor. something like what soriano aviation structure was before they went downhill. SEAir has a monopoly on the market therefore the price. I would still visit Batanes regardless of the price thought.

There was a time Asian Spirit organised flights in Batanes...didn't last long though.

I also have this crazy Idea of seeing Babuyan Islands....something out of the ordinary.......

I heard mahirap din pumunta duon dahil pabago bago ang climate, kahit seacraft minsan timing din. Atleast, according to my wife's friend who was from Batanes. Besides that, they have a very small population there and that the tourism industry isn't great. This is one of those places in the Philippines DOT needed to promote.

How many stops, and where would you like to stop? Also, what airlines did you have in mind?

Washington SyCip is a highly respected businessman who, though of Chinese lineage, is more Filipino at heart. He founded SGV (SyCip Gorres Velayo & Co). SGV has trained thousands of Filipino accountants. In fact, the incumbent Finance Secretary Cesar Purisima was the managing partner of SGV when he was asked to join the government by then PGMA. His accounting practice is so good that there are SGV offices in almost all major cities in Asia - Jakarta, KL, Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh, Taipei, name it.

Kung contribution lang sa bansa, malaking malaki ang naitulong ni Washington SyCip. SGV now is the Asian affiliate of Ernst & Young, one of the Big 4 accounting/ consulting firms based in New York, meaning, kung may isang US company na may operations sa Asia, at ang auditor ng kumpanyang yun sa Tate ay Ernst & Young, pag yung US company na yun ay may operations sa Pilipinas, ang auditor eh SGV. The same is true with other Asian country offices of that US company. That is the impact of Mr SyCip on the Philippines and Asia.

Thank you sa detailed info, I'll keep that in mind...

It's good to have more of them in the Philippines. I'm even very welcoming to that idea that foreign nationals are investing in the Philippines and would call the Philippines their home as well. For instance, some Koreans and sure, Chinese as well. The country should open itself to foreign immigration, foreign ownership and all especially if it's going to contribute to creation of jobs, stronger export industry.
