Mangio said that as of now, several investors have already signified their interests to put up businesses in the area. Some of them are even running big businesses in the country, he added.

“Nakakatuwa dahil sa kasalukuyan ay maganda ang pagtanggap ng mga negosyante on the development plan. Marami na ang nagpahayag ng kahandaang mamumuhunan. Karamihan sa mga ito ay maituturing nang institusyon pagdating sa pagnenegosyo sa bansa,” he added.

Identified were five kilometers from the east and west have been identified as the possible location and “corridor” for investment. About 98 hectares are available to accommodate the business expansion requirement of every potential investor, he said.

“Alam niyo ang malaking factor na nagugustuhan ng mga mamumuhunan ay iyung ganda ng mga infrastructure at facilities na naipagawa sa ating rehiyon,” Mangio revealed.

He also said investments in vital infrastructure projects such as the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway and the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport have created continuous movement of goods and people to and from Subic and Clark.
