New Clark firm prexy begins stint

CITY OF SAN FERNANDO -- The Clark Development Corporation (CDC) will have, starting Monday, a new leader at its helm.

Business leader Levy Laus is officially starting his stint as CDC president. He will be addressing CDC directors, officials and employees, as well as officials and personnel of the Clark International Airport Corp. (Ciac), locators and other guests.

Laus expressed gratitude to President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo for giving him the privilege and honor to lead the state-owned firm.

"We will continue the President's vision of a productive employment and low-cost economic activity inside the Clark Special Economic Zone," Laus said.

He said his other programs for the CDC will depend on the information he will be receiving in his first few days in office, with the intent of crafting programs needed to be able to achieve the objectives of the firm.

Laus, who is also the president of the Pampanga Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PamCham), was appointed by President Arroyo to the CDC top post early September after his predecessor, Antonio Ng, resigned.

Earlier, traders and executives expressed excitement over Laus's appointment, saying it was a "whiff of fresh air".

"Mr. Laus will come in to CDC bringing with him two decades or more of corporate experience. He will come in like a whiff of fresh air," said Edgardo Pamintuan, chairman of the Subic-Clark Area Development Council.

"I am sure he (Laus) will help me in fast-tracking major projects of the President and to reduce, if not totally remove, red tape for the benefit of locators and investors and eventually help put up components for the mega logistics hub," Pamintuan said.

City Mayor Oscar Rodriguez, whose city benefited from the assistance of Laus to community development, said Fernandinos are happy for the incoming CDC president.

"It is a well-deserved appointment," he said.

Representative Rey Aquino also said Laus's leadership at the CDC is timely, especially at the time when the President has poured in major programs for areas north of Metro Manila.

"Mr. Laus's expertise in business and civic organizations would be a great push for Clark, and eventually to the City of San Fernando, the province and the whole nation," said Aquino, explaining that Clark generates employment and provides income for the National Government.

"I think President Arroyo is expecting much from Clark that is why she chose Mr. Laus to head the ecozone," Aquino added. Sun Star
