To constantly boost the growth of our local economy through various reforms, the government is eyeing the development of Sangley Point into an International Logistic Hub.

Sen. Ramon Bong Revilla, Jr. filed a bill which seeks to support the construction and development of infrastructure which will benefit the country by lowering the expenses entailing the importation and exportation of industrial goods.

According to Revilla's bill, the construction of the international container port complex, including an airport and seaport, can only be realized through the rehabilitation of the US Naval Sangley Point in Cavite City.

The U.S. Naval Station Sangley Point is a large ship-repair and supply facility owned and built by the United States Navy, at the northern part of Cavite City peninsula. It is located 8 miles from southwest of Manila, and is surrounded by Manila Bay.

After World War II, it became a headquarters of the U.S. Asiatic Fleet, and became under full control of the Philippine Government in 1971. At present, Sangley Point is used by the Philippine Navy as a port where most of its ships are repaired.

Revilla said that Sangley Point has the potential to boost sea transport once developed. Moreover, it also has a military airport with a concrete runway of 229 x 22 meters and highways connecting Manila and CALABARZON.

No less than Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte issued a directive to develop Sangley Point, validating the importance and relevance of Revilla's bill seeking to rehabilitate and develop Sangley Point especially now that the country's economy is moving towards an upward trajectory. Furthermore, the development of Sangley Point will also propel the economic development of the whole Cavite Province.
