CLARK FREEPORT – Groups of Chinese investors are bent on spending billions of peso worth of investments as they are eyeing for the possible expansion of their respective businesses in Pampanga.

This was gleaned during their recent meeting here with Governor Lilia “Nanay” Pineda, Vice Governor Dennis “Delta” Pineda, Pampanga Councilor’s League President Olga Frances “Fritzie” David-Dizon, San Simon Mayor Leonora Wong, Former San Simon Mayor Rodrigo “Digos” Canlas and National Telecommunications Commission Regional Director Azor Sitchon.

The two Chinese groups – Jing Jiang and Yatay underscored their respective plans to put up more investments which would generate thousands of jobs among the Kapampangans and other locals from nearby provinces.

According to the former San Simon Mayor Canlas, these Chinese businessmen want to spend billions worth of investments in the province particularly in the towns of San Simon and Mexico.

He also disclosed that a Chinese businessman from the Chinese Chamber Global Group had begun its business venture in the past by acquiring 17 hectares in San Simon.

He added that the other Chinese investors believed that San Simon town has the potential as it is strategically located beside the stretch and exit of North-Luzon Expressway (NLEx).

The former mayor also revealed that Jing Jiang Group also bought 40 hectares of land in San Simon but they still want to develop more up to 1,000 hectares hence, they inquired to Mexico Mayor Teddy Tumang for the possible expansion up to their town.

“I was the one who contacted Mayor Tumang to tell him that the Chinese investors want to expand in Mexico and their willingness to purchase hectares of land. That’s why I arranged a meeting with the mayor in Manila to meet the Chinese businessmen. That’s they came up with an agreement,” Former Mayor Canlas said.

He added that the Chinese Investors then wanted to personally meet the governor to present their business plans.

“Nakita naman siguro nila na cooperative sina governor at vice governor kaya lalong lalakas ang loob nila dahil nakilala na nila ang mga Pampanga officials,” the former mayor stressed.
