SBMA honcho: Subic, Clark are not in competition
Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) Administrator Wilma Eisma said she has been tasked by the Board of Investments to promote the Region III as an investment and tourism hub.
Eisma said Subic seaport and Clark airport should complement each other for the development of the Central Luzon growth corridor.
“I’m selling not just Subic, I’m actually selling Clark,” she said.
“I would like to think that we are not in competition with Clark because we have our own strengths,” Eisma added.
Eisma also said that the port congestion and traffic problems in Metro Manila has increased SBMA’s revenue.
“I’m sure that we are being helped immensely by the traffic in Manila because businessmen are actually losing money with that traffic. If they actually bring their goods in Subic, not only we are cheaper in terms of operation but the ease of doing business,” Eisma said.
