SUBIC BAY FREEPORT, Philippines – United States-based Filipino entrepreneurs belonging to the Federation of Philippine-American Chambers of Commerce (FPACC) are planning to put up businesses in this Freeport.

According to FPACC delegation of 65 members came over here for the Luzon leg of the US Trade and Investment Mission to the Philippines and they have met with officials of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA), local industry leaders, and heads of local government units (LGUs).
