Bataan expects more coastal investments
Bataan Governor Albert Raymond Garcia recently proudly spoke of the big potential of the province to attract investments from shipping companies because of its strategic geographical location.
Because of its proximity to Metro Manila, Garcia said Bataan has “captivated the locators’ investment foresight due to its conducive maritime and ecological advantages at the mouth of Manila Bay.”
Orion City Mayor Antonio Raymundo, Jr. Said that San Miguel Corporation, the country’s largest food conglomerate, is planning to relocate its grains terminal from Mariveles to a 200-hectare area in their town’s coastal village of Puting Buhangin.
The provincial government is expecting more investments in the cities of Mariveles, Limay and Orion as alternative spots to the overcrowded ports of Metro Manila.
As Bataan develops its progressive ecozones, it also gears for possible investments from labor-intensive manufacturing firms.
This is in line with the national government’s policy to spread infrastructure development from the National Capital Region to the countryside.
