Bataan Freeport officials to install CCTVs in ecozone
Authorities are working to strengthen security measures in the Freeport Area of Bataan (FAB) in the Municipality of Mariveles, Bataan province.
The Authority of Freeport Area of Bataan (AFAB) and Metro Bataan Development Authority (MBDA) are planning to install closed-circuit camera television system (CCTVs) in strategic locations of the country’s first export processing zone.
The CCTVs would be used to maintain perimeter security, monitor traffic, and capture a visual record of human activity and other valuable information.
The measure is part of the two bodies’ recent agreement to update security procedures in the ecozone, an information revealed during the AFAB Kapihan with members of the media held on Tuesday at the municipality’s administration building.
Emmanuel Pineda, chairperson and administrator of AFAB, explained that the arrangement with Charlie Pizarro, chairperson and general manager of MBDA, involves protecting the transport of raw materials to factories and the shipment of top-quality export products intended for international markets, inside the AFAB complex.
Cargo hauling firms, public transport operators, academicians and other stakeholders in the AFAB have described the proposal to install CCTVs as timely, as the historical peninsula aspires to create a more business-friendly atmosphere.
