Phl cities charm investors at China-Asean Expo

By Evelyn Macairan (The Philippine Star) Updated September 24, 2012
Quote:
GUANGXI – Banking on their strategic locations, San Fernando City in La Union and the Clark Freeport Zone (CFZ) both placed their best foot forward in a bid to attract the attention of investors from China and other member-states of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).

San Fernando City and the CFZ were both chosen as the “Cities of Charm” from the Philippines in the 9th China-ASEAN four-day Expo that began on Sept. 21 in the city of Nanning.

San Fernando Mayor Pablo Ortega informed investor prospects in the “Investment Seminar-Business Opportunities in the Philippines” held at the Nanning International Convention and Exhibition Center (NICEC) on Saturday that their city’s location would suit the needs of investors and visiting tourists.

He said San Fernando is regarded as the “gateway to the North” and the “prime capital city of Ilocandia.”

San Fernando in La Union is the home of the Poro Point Freeport Zone (PPFZ) that can be easily accessed via land, air and sea. San Fernando’s seaport is already classified as “international” since it has been accommodating cruise ships, cargo vessels and barges in its pier.

The international seaport of PPFZ has a total land area of 30 hectares and with a possible reclamation area of over 100 hectares. It has three pier structures, six warehouses and open storage areas that are ideal for various types of cargo.


Ortega offered the city to the business community here.

“This is what we offer, fast emerging of development is the Poro Point Freeport Zone wherein a sizeable portion is surrounded by the West Philippine Sea,” he said.

He added San Fernando is blessed to be located 270 kilometers northwest of Metro Manila. From La Union, visitors could also access other tourist destinations of nearby provinces including Baguio, Vigan in Ilocos Sur, Laoag City in Ilocos Norte, and Pangasinan.

San Fernando City Councilor Joseph de Guzman said their efforts to promote tourism have been paying off because compared to three years ago, there has been about a 50-percent increase in the number of tourists.
“There are already a lot of Koreans in the city. There are also several Chinese businessmen who own small businesses,” he said.

One of the city’s biggest and latest attractions is the Thunderbird Resort that has a casino.

Among the time tested tourist attractions in San Fernando City are the 20-hectare botanical garden, the Ma-cho Temple, and the 25-foot statue of Christ the Redeemer at the Reservoir Hill.

Great to know about these developments...the countryside really needs to grow, if progress were to be felt at the grassroots

first visitor to post in this thread. Very very welcome!

It's been overdue that the seaport must have been developed. There are such very slim chances on redeveloping this seaport as of the moment

BCDA Generates P56.6-Billion Sales

Bases Conversion Development Authority (BCDA) has generated P56.597 billion in sales as of November this year from the sale of military properties since the agency’s creation.

BCDA president Arnel Casanova reported that bulk of the BCDA earnings come from the sale of Fort Bonifacio and Villamor Airbases.

For 2012 alone, the agency has generated P3.2 billion of which P2 billion have been earmarked for the Armed Forces modernization.

For next year, BCDA would be busy implementing most of its major undertakings after it has adopted a strategy for its remaining assets and as it embarks into new developments.

“Next year will be a banner year for BCDA,” he said.

Some of its projects include the Clark airport development, which is to fully utilize Clark into a intelligent city.

It will also finalize the feasibility study for the monorail project by January this year. The monorail will connect Global City, Makati, New Port and the airport.

The concept study has initially indicated a cost of P24 billion to P26 billion but Casanova said the project would be done under the Public Private Partnership scheme with BCDA as the main proponent.

The other option BCDA is looking at is to undertake the project through official development assistance financing.

The redevelopment is aimed at expanding the airport and developing a terminal.

In addition, BCDA will be redeveloping the San Fernando La Union airport in Poro Point to attract commercial flights operations into the tourist destinations in northern Luzon.

The airport redevelopment has involved the tourism operators in the area so they can guarantee passengers to airlines which would be asked to fly into San Fernando. At present, no airline flies to this airport.

In addition, BCDA expects to settle issues with Bulkhandlers Inc. to facilitate operations of the seaport in Poro Point.

“Floating book shop” arriving in San Fernando port

By: William Jun Garcia
April 11, 2013

Quote:
A ship which serves as an “ambassador of goodwill and international relations,” will arrive in San Fernando City and stay docked from May 22 to June 4, 2013, for the general public.

The vessel, named MV Logos Hope is following its predecessor, MV Doulos which visited San Fernando in 1996, 2000 and 2001. Logos ship is the newest vessel in the GBA fleet ships.

Originally functioning as a car ferry between Denmark and Faroe Islands, the said ship was purchased by GBA Ships in 2005 and converted into a floating book fair. Since 2008, it has sailed across the globe with the purpose of bringing “Knowledge, Help and Hope,” to the nations of the world.

A letter which has been sent to Mayor Pablo C. Ortega by Joanne Li, a Taiwanese project manager and permissions coordinator of the GBA Sips, said that the ship is scheduled for the public to see from May 23 to June 2, 2013.

“MV Logos Hope seeks to transform communities via practical help and actions of humanity. Over the past 40 years GBA Ships fleet has been warmly received in over 500 ports in more than 160 countries as the ship provides good educational literature and promotes unity in diversity. Our ships have also welcomed over 40 million visitors on-board,” Li wrote.

MV Logos Hope is operated as a non-profit international book fair and youth service project. It has a crew and staff of 400 people from around 45 different countries who serve as volunteers.
