Central Luzon, with Clark on point

Long the center of the Philippines’ commercial activities, Metro Manila is straining to accommodate a growing population and a myriad of business activities.  Pushing outside the capital is now a national priority—and Central Luzon, with Clark as its hub, is ready to lead the next wave of growth. Atop one part of the old US Airforce Base and adjacent to Clark International Airport is a 177-hectare site that is morphing nto an important commercial and logistics hub. Clark Gateway City is one of the largest development sites in Luzon and already has easy access to air, sea, and land connections. Clark Gateway City is the brainchild of the Global Gateway Development Corporation (GGDC). As a sign of what’s to come, Medical City hospital opened in Clark Gateway City in 2014, bringing the best of the Philippines’ healthcare into  Central Luzon. Close by is the growing campus of the University of the Philippines in Clark. Once an extension of UP’s flagship campus in Diliman, UP Clark is being expanded into a 3-hectare permanent campus.
