ZAMBOANGA CITY (MindaNews/25 October) – The Zamboanga City Special Economic Zone and Freeport Authority (Zamboecozone) will focus next year on developing the Second Industrial Park at the Zamboecozone area.

Christopher Lawrence Arnuco, Zamboecozone Chairman and Administrator, said the funding for the development of the 664-hectare Second Industrial Park is included in next year’s budget for the Ecozone.

Arnuco said the House of Representatives has already approved the Ecozone’s 2015 proposed budget of P246 million.

“It is now pending before the Senate,” he added.

The entire area of Zamboecozone consists of 16,000 hectares of logged-over forest in this city’s west coast from Barangay Talisayan up to the hinterlands of Barangays La Paz and Pamucutan.
