Invest in Puerto Princesa City. The Next Big Opportunity
Puerto Princesa Mayor Calls For More Business, Organizes Business Forum
By: Puerto Princesa Business Forum
With the theme "Puerto Princesa. Your Investment. Our Commitment.,"
Puerto Princesa has multiple competitive advantages. It is strategically located within the growth corridor of the BIMP-East ASEAN Growth Area (BIMP-EAGA), with global connectivity through its new international airport (with direct flights to South Korea, Taiwan, and mainland China) and a seaport that is currently undergoing modernization.
It is an economic growth hub of Region IV-B with its rich natural resources, fertile fishing grounds and vast tracts of land available for development that provides a wide range of possibilities for agri-fishery processing, logistics, industry and services, leisure and living.
Puerto Princesa remains an attractive tourism draw to both local and foreign travelers, with visitor traveler increase of 25 percent in 2018 from 2017. Seventy percent of visitors to Palawan go to Puerto Princesa City. It is home to the world-famous Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Under the USAID's Strengthening Urban Resilience for Growth with Equity (SURGE) Project, Puerto Princesa's city government has instituted sound business reforms and a better environment for investments. It has also strengthened its public-private sector collaboration that is essential for the city to sustain local economic growth and development.
