Angeles City and Clark Freeport & Special Economic Zone (commonly referred to simply as “Clark”) are both in the province of Pampanga, approximately 100KM North of Manila. They make excellent business locations.
Angeles City is geared predominantly towards leisure travellers and tourists. Its congested roads and limited parking facilities mean that for medium or large scale corporate events, logistics can be problematic. However, smaller events and business meetings can be held very successfully at some of the established Angeles City Hotels.
It is fair to say that the vast majority of modern facilities are currently in the Clark Freeport area, as several major international Hotel brands now have operations in Clark, together with established manufacturing companies, call centres, Business Processing Outsourcing (BPO’s) and regional office lets.
Although most Hotels are located in the Clark Freeport area, rapid development of the area is changing the landscape. Therefore, it should be noted that “Clark” comprises of three specific areas, all of which are expanding at apace. They are: Clark Freeport & Special Economic Zone, Clark Global City and New Clark City respectively.
The Clark International Airport is also as its name suggests, located in Clark and provides access to the world via connections to major global airport Hubs in Asia and the Middle East. More detailed travel information and local travel advice can be found here.
