Alsons Group to establish new ecozone in GenSan

The Alsons Group is proposing to establish a new ecozone in General Santos City, the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) said Friday.

PEZA Director General Tereso Panga said the agro-industrial conglomerate is looking to establish an Agro-Industrial Economic Zone within its 1,000-hectare property in Barangay Apopong.

“As a growth driver of business and industries, Alsons Group plays a key role in fueling the development, particularly of Mindanao, through its strategic investments in industrial parks and real estate development, agri/aqua business, power generation, and mining,” PEZA said.

The proposed Agro-Industrial Economic Zone currently houses the box packaging facility of fresh pineapples and bananas, which are predominantly for export.

PEZA also recently visited the Kamanga Agro-Industrial Ecozone (KAIEZ) in Maasim, Sarangani province, to check on the status of operations of the ecozone developer and its locator companies.

“To accommodate the urgent and big-ticket projects of its locator companies, the ecozone developer, Kamanga Agro-Industrial Development Corporation (KAIEDC) under the Alsons Group, applied for annexation of additional 32.8 hectares into the KAIEZ,” the agency added.
