The University of the Philippines has signed a deal with state-run Bases Conversion and Development Authority to build a global campus in Clark Green City in Central Luzon.

UP president Alfredo Pascual and BCDA president and chief executive Arnel Casanova signed a memorandum of agreement at UP Diliman in Quezon City for the development of a 70-hectare lot in the proposed Clark Green City into an educational hub.

“The UP global campus in Clark Green City will play a pivotal role in jump starting the Innovative and Academic District in Clark Green City,” Casanova said.

Clark Green City, covering 9,450 hectares in Pampanga and Tarlac, is envisioned to be the first smart, disaster-resilient and green city in the Philippines.

BCDA said the Innovative and Academic District in Clark Green City was envisioned to be the brain capital of the Philippines, a melting pot of new technologies, innovation and creative industries.

“For every poor Filipino who needs to be educated, there must be place that UP could provide for them. For every creative and innovative mind that our country could produce, UP must be able to provide the opportunity for them. The UP Clark Green City will make this happen,” Casanova said.

Pascual said UP was ready to present the conceptual plan of the UP Campus in Clark Green City to the BCDA.  He said the state-owned university had the initial funds to implement the project, which was scheduled to break ground by the first quarter of 2016.

Under the agreement, BCDA will turn over some 70 hectares through a deed of conveyance to the premier state university, subject to a final ground survey that will be jointly conducted by both parties.

UP will develop the property into an academic and research campus of the UP System and operate and manage the said property. UP will develop the property at its own expense in accordance with the parameters, land use plan and other guidelines provided in the Clark Green City master development plan.

The agreement has a term of 50 years, which is renewable for another 50 years.
