Freeport Zone







The Berthaphil Business Park is located in the Clark Freeport Zone, approximately 2 hr, 30 mins from Subic sea port, 5 minutes from Clarkfield international airport, north of Manila on the island of Luzon. The Freeport Zone is located on the site of the former Clark Air Force Base, which until its closure in 1991 was one of the largest US overseas military installations.The current facilities include much of the world-class infrastracture left behind by the departing military forces, supplemented by new and upgraded communications and basic utilities. These include a high capacity fiber optic communication and data transfer system, a newly constructed power plant assuring reliable power supply, and water sewerage systems operated by French multinational Vivendi.

The strategic location that made Clark an ideal military location also makes it a perfect business site. The location is within easy flying distance of every major city in Asia, as well as the West cost of the US. First class port services are easily accessible at nearby Subic Bay.

The Philippine Government has matched this combination of first-world infrastructure and strategic location with an incentive package equal to any in the world. All imports of machinery, equipment, raw materials, supplies, and finished goods are free of all taxes and duties. Firms located inside the zone are exempt from all local and national taxes, paying instead a fixed 5% of Gross Income Earned. An extensive array of deductionsare allowed. Non-Fiscal incentives include a fast and liberal customs procedures, unlimited purchase and consumption of duty-free goods within the zone, freedom from foreign exchange controls, liberal banking and finance incentives, and special visa status for investors, executives and employees.

The Clark Freeport Zone provides an unparalleled combination of infrustracture, location, and incentives. The Berthaphil Industrial Park adds operations-ready facilities, cutting your startup time to a minimum and allowing your business to take immediate advantage of all that Clark has to offer.
