CLARK FREEPORT — The Clark Investors and Locators Association (CILA) will continue to serve as the nexus or link between government entities and investors inside the Freeport.

Thus said Dr. Ireneo Alvaro who was voted as top director of the locators’ association last November 17 at the Widus Convetion Center here. Alvaro also assured that the new CILA leaders “will continue to provide and inform the more than 180 members of the business climate, policy changes, tax holidays, perks and privileges, and other related developments and services.” Alvaro is the chairman and chief executive officer of the BB Group of Companies and Medal Consortium, which operates hotels and casinos in the country.
