New Clark City in Capas town in Tarlac province has finally reopened its doors after two years of pandemic restrictions, according to the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA).

BCDA, together with its development partner, MTD Philippines Inc., hosted a grand reopening event at New Clark City on May 28 to 29, following the soft reopening last May 7.

“With easing lockdowns, BCDA felt that it is the right time to reopen New Clark City to the public, and enable visitors to experience what this future metropolis has to offer,” said Aristotle Batuhan, BCDA officer-in-charge president and CEO.

“We hope this move will uplift the spirit of Filipinos after two years of fighting the virus and inspire optimism that recovery is on the horizon,” he added.

With the reopening, visitors can now tour New Clark City every weekend, with free access to open spaces and viewing areas within its world-class sports facilities.

This comes after two years of restriction due to the pandemic, which prompted the BCDA to convert the National Government Administrative Center (NGAC) and Athletes’ Village in New Clark City into instant medical and isolation facilities.
