The Asian Business Aviation Association (AsBAA) signed an MoU at the beginning of the show MOU to help Subic Bay International Airport develop its infrastructure with a view to advancing business and general aviation in the Philippines.
AsBAA will support and advise on the initial design and ongoing operation of the Subic Bay International Airport to bring about a facility that regional operators can easily access.
Representatives of the Philippine government are on hand at the show to present investment opportunities in Subic, Clark and the surrounding areas. Leading the delegation is Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority Chairperson and Administrator Wilma “Amy” Eisma, and Bases Conversion and Development Authority SVP Business Development and Operations Joshua Bingcang.
Eisma said, “We see great opportunity for business and general Aviation in the Philippines. The first challenge will be to overcome the issues caused by overcrowding and to enhance infrastructure to allow the industry to thrive, create jobs and drive investment into Manila. We look forward to working with AsBAA on these exciting developments”.
The MOU is the second that AsBAA has signed this year to develop airport infrastructure in Southeast Asia. The first was a cooperation between AsBAA and Malaysia Airports to advise the Malaysian Government on the Subang Regeneration Project, City Airport Development and other initiatives in the economic free zone.
