PEZA to launch more green economic zones across PHL
by Pamela Mariz Geminiano / PNA

The Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) is bent on introducing more green economic sites across the country.

“PEZA is really committed to introduce more environment-friendly industries to correct the mindset of people that bringing industrialization will destroy the environment,” PEZA Director General Charito Plaza said.

“Industrialization can happen without harming the environment,” she said.

PEZA is adopting the concept of environment-friendly industrialization by creating different types of economic zones that will enhance the potentials of a specific site through responsible use of its natural resources.

“If the land is agricultural, we call it agro-industrial economic zone. Only food-related and agriculture-related industries will be invited to locate and operate on the said economic zone. If the land is timberland, we call it agro-forestry economic zone, with only wood-related and paper production-related industries allowed to operate inside,” Plaza said.

She said PEZA eyes opening an information technology park, tourism economic zone, medical tourism park, medical tourism center, and retirement economic zone.

“We are also encouraging our locator industries to join us in these programs. Soon, PEZA will come up with a Philippine economic zone map, showing different types of economic zones in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao,” she said.

PEZA launched in Baguio last week the Revolution Smoke-Free Program.

Rene Joey Mipa, administrator of the Baguio City Economic Zone Authority (BCEZA), said picking Baguio as the launching site and model for PEZA’s “Revolution Smoke-Free” program boosts the Summer Capital’s advocacy for a healthy environment, even in the workplaces, aside from being a model for all economic zones nationwide.

“PEZA will require all other economic zones nationwide to follow the example of BCEZA, as this is a living testimony to how we (industries) can show our concern for our employees’ welfare,” Mipa said.
