Before the presentation of Manankil on the plans and programs of CDC for the 2017, CILA President Joselito Go said that their group is looking forward to establishing a close working relationship with CDC to achieve more milestone inside this Freeport.
“Congratulations to NFM as the new President and CEO of CDC. We are looking forward for continuing partnership and more collaborative discussions on issues and concerns that will make the lives of locators and investors of Clark easier and more convenient, worthy and productive, Go said.
“Good luck to all the upcoming big projects and CILA will always work hand in hand with you because we believe… Everything Clark!,” Go said.
