MANILA, Philippines - The Authority of Freeport Area of Bataan (AFAB) hopes to match, if not beat, its 2014 banner performance this year with more investment commitments in power, infrastructure and port development expected in the second half.

FAB chairman Deogracias Custodio said in a recent interview that it would be difficult for the freeport zone to surpass the P84-billion investment pledges just in the first half of 2014.

However, he said the freeport zone is trying to match the record-high investment commitments last year.

THE PHILIPPINES had to endure much during World War II, particularly when Bataan fell to the Japanese Imperial Army in 1942.

When they surrendered to the Japanese, the Filipinos and Americans thought the worse was behind them. They found out that it was but a start of a brutal ordeal. New horrors were unleashed on them, like the infamous Death March and harsh prison conditions.

After rising from the ashes of conflict, Bataan now boasts of a provincial economy that is home to several economic zones. For foreign investors, it has become one of the choice destinations in Southeast Asia.
