Clark to be the crowning jewel of Luzon under Duterte

Pampanga will be a major economic center under this administration.

The Build, Build, Build program of the Duterte administration will manifest itself through the emergence of Clark as a growth hub.

?Clark will soon be the showcase of the Duterte administration?s economic strategy. We expect this area to be the growth driver for Central and Northern Luzon,? Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez III said during a forum at the Clark Freeport Zone.

In particular, the creation of the 40-hectar National Government Administrative Center at the heart of the New Clark City will be the next big metropolis.
