Home • Freeports & Ecozones
Zones under the stewardship of BCDA and its subsidiaries remain to be among the country’s prime investment locations, and popular tourist destinations. As such, they have been key contributors to national development.
The Clark Freeport and Special Economic Zone in Pampanga province, with an area of 26,000 hectares, is a fully-integrated logistics, tourism, manufacturing, and agro-industrial development. Within it is Clark International Airport, a 2,367-hectare aviation complex designated as the new international gateway for the Philippines.
Rising in Clark is the New Clark City, a 9,450-hectare area that is envisioned to be the country's first smart, green and disaster-resilient metropolis. Another project in the offing is the expansion of the Clark International Airport.
The Poro Point Freeport Zone in La Union is a prime location for investments and tourism in North Luzon with its airport, seaport and tourism facilities.
The John Hay Special Economic Zone in Baguio City is a tourism complex, a multiple-use forest watershed and a human resource development center. The Bataan Technology Park in Morong, Bataan is planned for an industrial and tourism development.
Managing these freeports are BCDA's subsidiaries—namely the Clark Development Corporation (CDC), John Hay Management Corporation (JHMC), and the Poro Point Management Corporation continue to offer opportunities for investment and tourism to the local and international communities and, in effect, guaranteed employment to thousands of Filipinos.
These zones are accessible via the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX).
