A 400-hectare Bulacan Mega City is being planned based on an agreement signed with Hunan, China local executives and Bulacan local government officials.

Bulacan Mega City will not only house international outlet stores, a shopping mall and factory outlets but also a techno hub, industrial factories, warehouse and even call centers.

Governor Daniel Fernando who led the Bulacan contingent in a recent trip to China said, “Both provinces, Hunan and Bulacan, have innumerable potentials both in natural and human resources.”

“Through the sisterhood agreement signed by the two parties, we will make sure that both sides will benefit and the friendship is for the greater good,” he added.

The mega city, which will be located in the three municipalities of Pandi, Bocaue and Balagtas, is expected to generate 100,000 jobs for Bulakenyos.

The governor embarked on a three-day trip in Hunan with his party composed of Pandi Mayor Enrico Roque, Third District Representative Lorna Silverio, Provincial Planning and Development Office Head Arlene Pascual, Provincial Agriculturist Ma. Gloria Carrillo and Provincial Cooperative Enterprise and Development Office Head Cynthia Abiol.

The governor’s party was received by Hunan Vice Governor He Baoxiang, Loudi Mayor Yang Yi Wen and Chinese investors and businessmen.

Aimed at boosting the province’s progressive economy, the mega city goes well with another planned big ticket project, the New Manila International Airport, which will be located in Bulakan, Bulacan. (Jojo Mangahis)
