This, as MTD also builds the National Government Administrative Center, a back-up site for government offices inside the NCC in times of disasters and calamities.

Earlier, the Bases Conversion Development Authority which spearheads the development of the 9,450-hectare NCC has said that the place is “close to ready” for the biennial sports meet.

“Phase 1 of the National Government Administrative Center in New Clark City has significantly progressed since it broke ground January this year,” BCDA President and CEO Vivencio Dizon said.

Phase 1 of the 200-hectare National Government Administrative Center involves the development of back-up offices of various agencies to ensure continuous business operations and services for the people in case of disasters or national calamities.

Phase 1A will house the world-class Athletics Stadium, Aquatics Center, Athletes’ Village, and government housing which will soon benefit thousands of athletes and government workers. By the end of 2019, we will see the National Government Administrative Center completed and fully operational.
