Clark International Airport as Asia’s next ‘aerotropolis’
1:41 pm | Monday, February 11th, 2013

MANILA, Philippines–With the world’s economic center of gravity rapidly moving eastward, there is increasing urgency to develop Clark International Airport into an aviation hub, and this is the focus of a two-day conference to be held this month at the Clark Freeport Zone in Pampanga.

“The Case for Asia’s Next Aerotropolis” is the theme of the Clark Aviation Conference 2013, a trade gathering that will examine Clark’s compelling case as an aerotropolis, an idea in community planning where airports serve as the center for new cities growing around them.

The conference, being organized by Clark International Airport Corp (CIAC) in partnership with Global Gateway Logistics City, takes place Feb. 21-22, 2013, at the Widus Convention Center in Clark Freeport Zone. It coincides with the annual Hot Air Balloon Fiesta.

“The event will highlight Clark International Airport’s critical role in easing air traffic congestion in Manila and driving economic expansion in Central Luzon. It will also identify infrastructure and policy developments at Clark Freeport Zone that are designed to attract airport-related businesses and investments,” said CIAC president and CEO Victor Jose Luciano.

“More importantly, the conference is a call for the full development of Clark International Airport as an aviation nerve center in the light of the economic growth in Asia.”
