CLARK FREEPORT -- Korean investors and their business partners based in Pampanga will construct a $2-million sewerage handling and sanitary disposal project in Barangay Calumpang, Mabalacat City.

Representatives of TesuPhils Inc. and L.C. Soliman Septic Tank Inc. signed on Tuesday the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) for the project in a 1.5-hectare land in Calumpang, which is part of the subzone of Clark.

The facility is expected to be completed in August this year, said Alfredo Soliman, director of L.C. Soliman.

Soliman said their facility will serve businesses and residents of Pampanga and other provinces in Central Luzon, Metro Manila and Calabarzon.

"We also made sure our future facility passed the necessary requirements and permits required by local and national governments," said Soliman.

Senator Manuel Lapid, Central Luzon Police Regional Office 3 officer-in-charge Chief Supt. Ronald Santos and Malabanias, Angeles City Barangay Captain Rey Gueco graced the MOA signing at the Clark Hills Building here.

Lapid arrived with Lydia Soliman, president of L.C. Soliman, and officials of the Korean firm TesuPhils led by its chairman, Si Young Chon.

Si said he is living and doing businesses in Pampanga and Clark for over 24 years.

"It's good doing business in the Philippines. The people in Pampanga are nice," said Si. (Joey Pavia/Contributor)
