Mega World one of the country top conglomerates with focus on real estate and other allied business are seriously setting its sight on Zamboanga City for big impact investment like a Commercial Business and Residential District and Cyber Park.

Mega World is famous for pioneering the development of Eastwood City and Cyber Park in Libis Quezon City, Mckinley Hills and Forbes Town Center in Bonifacio Global City in Taguig City, the Newport Resort World and NewCoast Boracay among many others.

In an exploratory meeting held last Saturday, September 1,2012 at the Lotus Restaurant of Grand Astoria Hotel, Zamboanga Chamber of Commerce and Industry President Pedro Rufo “Pocholo” N. Soliven together with key Chamber officials, Edwin G. To VP -External, Danny Y. Lim VP- Internal, Louell Saavedra, ICT Council Chair and Gary Paloma, ZCCIFI Executive Director officially met with Mega World Senior Vice President Noli D. Hernandez and Rachelle I. PenaFlorida AVP- Sales and Marketing. The meeting was facilitated by Honorary Consul of Spain and ZCCIFI newly inducted member, Ramon L. Balaguer.

Soliven was very satisfied with the positive outcome of the meeting with a definite agenda to spur economic progress and development and create opportunities for employment in ICT through the Cyber Park in Zamboanga City.

The highlight of the meeting was the Mega World top officials showing enthusiastic interest on the various opportunities for the giant conglomerate to invest in the City.

Soliven suggested during the briefing for the Mega World to seriously study how it can duplicate the Iloilo Airport model here in Zamboanga City.

Soliven suggested to explore the concept by transferring the present airport to Mercedes and convert the old airport site into a  Zamboanga NewTown, a mix residential and commercial business district and Cyber Park patterned after the development of the Bonifacio Global City through a Public-Private Partnership.

The Mega World officials will be coming back on Sept. 25  to firm up and gather more economic data to justify their entry and their multi billion investment, Soliven said. — Albert Francisco
