TO regain its stature as a leading investment location, Mayor Alfredo Lim is pushing for the proposed Manila Financial Center, earlier approved by former Presidents Fidel Ramos and Gloria Arroyo, now Pampanga representative.

Keynoting the 19th Metro Manila Business Conference 2011 held at the Centennial Hall of Manila Hotel, he said the business hub would rise in Port Area along Andres Bonifacio Drive.

“The Manila Financial Center is also in sync with the Philippine Ports Authority’s proposed South Harbor Expanded Port Zone,” said Lim.

“Businessmen should be given the credit for the developments in the city and the country because the taxes you pay finance the programs and projects of the government,” said Lim.

He expressed support to Benigno Aquino III’s policy of public private partnership to pursue major development programs to boost economic growth.

He commended Malacanang’s thrust to take up the infrastructure gap, corruption and bureaucratic inefficiency.

Lim said his administration was taking the PPP cue in building the Justice Jose Abad Santos General Hospital and Sta. Ana Hospital.

“We also plan to follow the same direction when the city government pursues its plan to rehabilitate the Ospital ng Maynila,” he said.

“You are welcome to propose for investment programs in our city.”
