Gov’t awards Clark airport deal


By Miguel R. Camus | Philippine Daily Inquirer

The Duterte administration awarded on Tuesday a contract to design and build a new passenger terminal for the Clark International Airport in Pampanga, a showcase of both its commitment to upgrade crucial transport infrastructure and the speed by which hybrid public-private partnership (PPP) deals could move.

The New Clark International Airport Terminal project’s engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract was awarded to a venture between Megawide Construction Corp. and India’s GMR Infrastructure yesterday. The new terminal would triple capacity at Clark Airport to 12 million passenger annually by 2020.

The EPC deal was rolled out last August by the Bases Conversion and Development Authority.
