MANILA, July 2 – – The Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) now fully controls the administration of the 22.3-hectare land of the Nayong Pilipino after it was formally turned over by the Nayong Pilipino Foundation on Monday.

MIAA will use the land for its expansion and development to build new cargo facilities that support the operation of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) terminal 3 and terminal 2.

Nayong Pilipino Foundation (NPF) Inc. trustee and executive director Apolonio Anota Jr. formally turned over to MIAA’s Salvador G. Peñaflor the jurisdiction of the 22.3 hectares land of Nayong Pilipino, which is situated between NAIA terminals 2 and 3.

The smooth transition of administration over the property is in accordance with Executive Order No. 58 signed by President Benigno Aquino III on Sept. 29, 2011. <Executive Order 58 mandates the transfer of Nayong Pilipino Foundation property in Pasay City to MIAA.

The order stated : “It is the declared policy of the State to promote and maintain a viable, efficient, dependable and safe air transportation system as an effective instrument for national recovery and economic progress.”

In 1972, the NPF was given a 45.9-hectare property in Pasay City, a portion of which was occupied by the Nayong Pilipino Cultural Park.

In 2002, then President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo allowed the transfer of 8.6 hectares of the NPF property to the MIAA and the closure of the NPF Park that was moved to the 15-ha property of the Philippine Reclamation Authority (PRA) in Parañaque City in 2007. (PNA) RMA/Benjie L. Vergara/jsd
