Subic-Clark Development discussed in NEDA-Cabinet group meet

President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo convened last 28 Sept the first meeting of the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) Cabinet Group at the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport VIP Lounge which mainly discussed the Subic-Clark Development.

Presented to the Cabinet Economic Committee during the meeting was the Subic-Clark Alliance Development (SCAD) Program which was approved by the President for implementation.

The SCAD envisions the Subic-Clark Corridor as a globally competitive logistic hub and a regional growth center.

It has an infrastructure-based development strategy, jumpstarted by the government and being pursued in partnership with the private sector.

The infrastructure development objectives include a world-class Subic seaport and the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport, hard infrastructure (e.g. power, water, telecom, industrial parks, agri-tourism-residential projects); soft infrastructure (manpower, housing, health education, incentives, and government services); and multi-lingual linkages with Metro Manila and the rest of Central and Northern Luzon.

SCAD’s institutional development objectives include the creation of SCAD corporation, a centralized master plan in consultation with stakeholders and supported by non-government agencies and local government units, and tie-up with foreign partners for expertise and funding.

Public Works and Highways Secretary Florante Soriquez also gave an update on the Pampanga Flood Control, while Environment and Natural Resources Secretary Michael Defensor presented the Pampanga River Basin Management Plan.

The President, likewise, discussed Medium Term Philippine Development Plan (MTPDP), which, she said, is a work in progress.

The final version of the MTPDP, which she said is the road map for development in the Arroyo Administration, will be presented to the public and media on October 11, the end of the first one hundred days of the President after her inauguration as the 14th President of the Republic last June 30, 2004
