COTABATO CITY, Oct. 5 — A proposed establishment of a Special Economic Zone in Cotabato City is underway.
In a Tuesday meeting with key department heads, City Administrator Danda Juanday said they are eyeing for a distinctive economic zone as it will not concentrate only on a specific area of development but would be the venue of various activities.
The proposed Eco zone is envisioned to become a free trade zone, an industrial hub, and a tourism friendly facility as well.
A 25-hectare donated land at Barangay Tamontaka Mother would be the site of the special economic zone.
Secretary to the Mayor Aniceto Rasalan said the initiative is one of President Rodrigo Duterte's priority programs to make Cotabato City the center for trading in South Central Mindanao.
Currently, the city government is working on completing necessary documents in order to present a full project proposal to concerned national government agencies. (PNA)
