The Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) and its subsidiaries — called the Bases Group — have identified a number of high-priority big-ticket infrastructure projects to vigorously push the government’s national development thrusts.
The Bases Group is composed of the BCDA, Clark Development Corp. (CDC), Clark International Airport Corp. (CIAC), John Hay Management Corp. (JHMC), Poro Point Management Corp. (PPMC), North Luzon Railways Corp. (Northrail), Bataan Technology Park Inc. (BTPI), and the BCDA Management and Holdings Inc. (BMHI).
The Bases Group will harness and develop centerpiece infrastructures consisting of the Clark International Airport, San Fernando Seaport and Airport in La Union, the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX), and several railway systems, including the monorail loop system in South Metro Manila, and the high-speed rail system connecting Metro Manila and Clark Special Economic Zone in Angeles, Pampanga.
The Bases Group will launch and implement a unified masterplan by 2012, covering all its properties and harnessing its vast land holdings driven by these identified infrastructure assets. The Group will maximize its airports, seaports, tollways and railways to bring the greatest impact to the national economy.
BCDA president and chief executive Arnel Paciano D. Casanova said that “sound regional development and urban planning, public infrastructure development, human resource development, corporate social responsibility, and environment protection, shall lay the groundwork and generate the synergy among the Bases Group to collectively accelerate the sustainable and inclusive national development grounded on integrity, transparency, and accountability.”
