SEA Games serve as Subic showcase

The ongoing Southeast Asian Games (SEAG) inside the Subic Freeport is a showcase of its people and capabilities.

This was the assessment made by SBMA Chairperson and Administrator Atty. Wilma Eisma who has been very visible in the different venues.

“Hosting the SEA Games gave us the opportunity to show what we have to offer and the kind of people we have working here. In fact our staff are doing double, triple jobs and working way beyond regular working hours,” she said.  

SBMA invested additional funds to upgrade its sports facilities together with the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC). 

“These are all existing revenue-generating facilities for us so it will all be worth it and can only benefit us in the future. We are planning to maintain the beach volleyball venue as a permanent one and maybe tie up with school leagues for their tournaments. Definitely the SEA Games has strengthened Subic positioning as a sports tourism center,” said Eisma.

“In general, everyone is happy about the results of our hosting, our hotels and restaurants are full, thanks to the influx of SEA Games participants, guests, and visitors. I also would like to clarify that for the venue for trap shooting, we did not denude any part of our forest as we made use of an existing clearing already, “ said Eisma.
