AFTER months of preparation and planning, work crews will break ground this month for the construction simultaneously of the CEZA Corporate Center and Commercial Center on an 11-hectare property dubbed the CEZA Global City that opens into a stunning view of Santa Ana’s white sand beaches in Cagayan.
Secretary Raul Lambino, now on his second year as Cagayan Economic Zone Authority Administrator and CEO, said the two buildings would be ready for occupancy by early next year.
Local commercial banks and a fresh batch of business locators in the tourism and manufacturing sectors are also setting up offices in the Corporate and Commercial Centers.
The planned improvement and rehabilitation of Port Irene also gets under way, Lambino said, with the construction of six new warehouses amid rising demand for space by port users importing construction materials and supplies and a variety of loose cargoes.
Lambino said CEZA would also seek authority from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources and work with the local government unit and various people’s organizations to begin development of the Nangaramoan Eco-Tourism Park and the Palaui Island Eco-Tourism Park.
Both parks have been strongly endorsed to boost tourism in Santa Ana and the nearby Palaui Island.
