Next boom story

Long the center of the Philippines’ commercial activities, Metro Manila is straining to accommodate a growing population and a myriad of business activities.  Pushing outside the capital is now a national priority—and Central Luzon, with Clark as its hub, is ready to lead the next wave of growth. Clark Gateway City is the brainchild of the Global Gateway Development Corporation (GGDC). As a sign of what’s to come, Medical City hospital opened in Clark Gateway City in 2014, bringing the best of the Philippines’ healthcare into  Central Luzon. Close by is the growing campus of the University of the Philippines in Clark. Once an extension of UP’s flagship campus in Diliman, UP Clark is being expanded into a 3-hectare permanent campus. In November this year Clark will be the site of the 31st ASEAN Summit.
