The German-Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Inc. (GPCCI), in cooperation with the German Embassy Manila and the German Club, requests the pleasure of your company for this month’s Economic Forum:
“The Golden Age of Infrastructure – Declogging Manila”
with Mr. Arrey A. Perez
Vice President, Business Development
Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA)
Thursday, 22 June 2017, at 7 PM
German Club, Manila
Mr. Arrey A. Perez will be giving a talk on “The Golden Age of Infrastructure – Declogging Manila!” ; An interesting subject with everyone looking forward to the “Build Build Build!” programs.
Mr. Perez is head of the core department in-charge of implementing the primary mandate of the BCDA, which is to privatize/dispose Metro Manila camps and former US military bases. The BCDA is mandated to convert these former military lands for the modernization of the Armed Forces of the Philippines and development of economic growth centers such as the Bonifacio Global City, Newport City, McKinley Hill, and McKinley West in Metro Manila; John Hay and Poro Point Freeport and Special Economic Zones in Northern Luzon; and Clark Special Economic Zone in Central Luzon.
Key accomplishments by Mr. Perez include successfully disposing various Fort Bonifacio lands in 2014 and 2015. This generated proceeds and revenues that led to the successful bidding for the joint development of a 288-hectare parcel in Clark Green City, won by Filinvest Land Incorporated in 2015. Mr. Perez successfully closed 2 lease contracts in 2015 for solar power farms with an aggregate area of 300 hectares in Clark Green City generating a combined 120 Mega Watts of green power. He also attracted foreign companies to visit and invest in the Philippines as a representative of BCDA in international trade missions, conferences and B2B meetings to countries such as China, France, Japan, Singapore, and South Korea.
