The construction of the world-class facilities and structures at New Clark City is in full swing, including the state-of-the-art Athletics Stadium and Aquatics Center which will be tapped for the 2019 Southeast Asian Games, the Bases Conversion Development Authority said.
Last Friday, top government officials headed by Speaker Gloria Macapagal Arroyo attended the unveiling of a countdown clock at the Bayanihan Park, put up by the BCDA.
“The activation of this countdown clock represents our optimism for a future that is full of promises. It symbolizes the common aspirations of our South East Asian family for a stronger regional community that is bound by friendship, camaraderie, cooperation, and teamwork,” Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea said.
