Recognizing Tarlac’s strategic significance within Central Luzon’s burgeoning economy, Aboitiz InfraCapital has unveiled an economic estate in Tarlac City, its fourth in the country.

Spanning 200 hectares of prime industrial land in its initial phase, the TARI Estate will serve as a catalyst for economic expansion and job creation, with up to 60,000 jobs projected to be generated.

“Our economic estates in Batangas and Cebu are thriving hubs, encompassing over 1,600 hectares of development. They house nearly 250 leaders in industry, generating over P155 billion in investments and employing over 100,000 Filipinos. TARI Estate will build upon this incredible legacy,” said Rafael Fernandez de Mesa, head of Aboitiz InfraCapital Economic Estates.

The company plans to invest P7 billion for the Tarlac development.

Aboitiz InfraCapital, with three decades of experience as the leading industrial developer in the Philippines, is aware of Central Luzon’s strategic location and robust economic growth, which makes it an attractive destination for investment.

According to Department of Trade and Industry Secretary Alfredo Pascual, TARI Estate represents a “beacon of hope” for Tarlac’s economic progress.

“By attracting investments and fostering entrepreneurship, it will play a pivotal role in driving sustainable growth and development.” Pascual said.

The TARI Estate will offer world-class facilities and amenities provided by Aboitiz Group affiliates, including power, water, construction, financing, smart city technology and government support to create a vibrant ecosystem for businesses.

“The development of TARI Estate, along with the mission of attracting foreign investments to locate within the estate, will create employment for Tarlac City and nearby municipalities,” said Pascual.
