CLARK FREEPORT ZONE — Clark International Airport Corporation (CIAC) reminded locators to remove structures that are deemed as “eyesores” at the Clark Civil Aviation Complex.
These include makeshift onsite quarters, improvised storage buildings, unkempt surroundings and crude structures with clotheslines in open view to the public.
“We courteously ordered locators to refrain from building makeshift structures that disfigure the commercial and business landscape (as these) structures are not at all appealing to an investment hub like the aviation complex,” said CIAC President Aaron Aquino.
Aquino added that among his first order of business after his appointment in early June was to inspect the premises of CIAC’s leased properties.
“If we are to attract more investments, both local and foreign, we’ll have to ensure the aesthetic value and the orderliness of the expansive aviation complex,” Aquino said.
Relative to Aquino’s directive, CIAC Vice President for Airport Operations, IC Calaguas formed an inspection team composed of personnel from the security department, internal audit and marketing to conduct surprise inspection on all locators.
“The team is just finalizing protocols, then we will start with the inspection as directed by President Aquino,” Calaguas said.
CIAC is a government corporation geared towards establishing a world-class commercial hub at the civil aviation complex—home to the privately-run Clark International Airport as well as the mixed-use business district Clark Global City and around 45 locators engaged in cargo and aviation-related businesses.
