Subic Free Port Emerging as Services and Logistics Hub

The Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA), a former US military base in the northern Philippines, is bent on becoming the region's hub for the services and logistics sectors as they accelerate plans on developing priority investment zones in the sprawling free port complex.
“We are very proud of the fact that we have attracted cumulative investments worth more than $7.16 billion and almost 1,500 investment projects as of 2010. Unfortunately, these investments won’t bring any economic benefit to us if they do not materialize for lack of space,” explains Armand Arreza, SBMA administrator.
Among the zones to be redeveloped is the Subic Gateway Park, which already hosts several business process outsourcing (BPO) companies. Arreza comments that the Subic Gateway Park is ‘emerging to be primarily our business process outsourcing (BPO) center within the next few years.’
Arreza says a 16-hectare area adjacent to the Subic Gateway Park will be developed into the new Gateway Business District, which will offer additional office space to the country’s expanding BPO industry.
