The Clark Development Corporation (CDC), under the direction of its President and Chief Executive Officer, Atty. Agnes VST Devanadera, has won praise from both public and private organizations for its dynamic performance and reputation for excellent government service.

CDC was honored as a top-ranking government-owned and controlled corporation (GOCC), achieving an outstanding score of ninety-nine percent (99%) in the 2022 Corporate Governance Scorecard (CGS). The freeport’s estate manager received this award during the GOCC Governance Awards Ceremony at the Philippine International Convention Center in Manila on November 20.

The award was given by the Governance Commission for Government-Owned and Controlled Corporations (GCG).

Moreover, the Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) has recognized CDC as one of its outstanding GOCC partners, citing CDC’s performance in ensuring and safeguarding government interests and assets.

In a related development, other key agencies have also formally acknowledged the CDC’s major contributions to upgrading government efficiency.

CDC’s Accounting Division received the Association of Government Accountants of the Philippines (AGAP) Inc. Outstanding Accounting Office Award on October 18 at the SMX Center in Bacolod City. They were recognized for meeting the criteria of accuracy, timeliness, reliability, and compliance with accounting rules and regulations set by the Committee on Awards.
