President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo today appointed Gen. Jose Calimlim (ret.) as member of the board of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA), and Filodelfo S. Rojas, Jr. as chairman of the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA).

Press Secretary and Presidential Spokesperson Ignacio R. Bunye said that in the meantime Francisco Licuanan III, who will assume as SBMA chairman on Nov. 1 vice Felicito Payumo, has been named adviser for Subic-Clark Area Development (SCAD).

Calimlim, who was the commander of the Presidential Security Group (PSG) during the administration of former President Fidel V. Ramos, has also been appointed on a concurrent capacity as president of SBMA Freeport Services, Corp..

Rojas will replace Florencio Padernal as BCDA chairman.
Also today, Malacanang released Executive Order (EO) 365, which defines the functions of the adviser for SCAD.

Bunye said the duties of the adviser for SCAD include the formulation of program/plans for the development of Subic and Clark as a globally competitive international service and logistics center in the Asia- Pacific Region.

Licuanan will also secure the participation of strategic partners, domestic or foreign, from the public or private sector, to contribute capital, know-how, as well as market linkages necessary to spur the growth and development of Central Luzon.

The SCAD adviser will also try to obtain the required participation, support and assistance of all relevant government agencies and entities as well as concerned local government units in the formulation of the development as well as the implementation of the key components of the said program.

EO 365 also enjoined BCDA, CDC and SBMA to jointly provide the required financial, administrative and technical support to the SCAD adviser in the "efficient and effective discharge of his functions."

Likewise, all government agencies and instrumentalities were required to extend the necessary assistance and support to the SCAD adviser
