The Bases Conversion and Development Authority and Clark Development Corp. hosted an investment tour of New Clark City and the Clark Freeport Zone for the delegates of the recently-concluded 21st World Travel and Tourism Council Summit in Manila over the weekend.
BCDA officer-in-charge president and chief executive Aristotle Batuhan said the WTTC visit came at a perfect time as Clark and New Clark City are playing increasingly critical roles in enabling the local tourism industry and the Philippine economy transition to the new normal.
“The BCDA has always believed that the vision for New Clark City as a smart, resilient, sustainable and inclusive metropolis of the future deserves to be on the world stage. What better way to do this than to let international tourism leaders experience in person the excitement that is building here in New Clark City. We at the BCDA are thrilled to host our WTTC guests and show them how far we’ve come in making this vision a reality,” he said.
The investment tour was the final activity for WTTC Summit delegates. WTTC delegates visited the Clark International Airport passenger terminal and the Clark Freeport Zone and New Clark City, where the summit’s closing ceremony was held.
