Why invest in Batangas

Batangas City is one of the fastest-growing markets in the Philippines. It is a USAID-supported city that is the second largest international seaport in the country after Metro Manila, and has been identified as an industrial growth center in its region.

The city’s industrial growth is supported by the local government’s 10-year comprehensive plan that includes improvements in infrastructure, biodiversity, tourism, and real estate. Support from the ever-growing power and fuel industries adds another level of profitability in the city’s potential. In fact, the following multinational companies currently have operations in Batangas City

  • Shell Eastern Gas Philippines
  • Tabangao Special Export Processing Zone
  • Pilipinas Shell Refinery
  • Batangas Power Corporation
  • JG Summit Petrochemical Corporation
  • General Milling Corporation
  • Pacific Flour Mills
  • Chemphil Bulk Terminal
  • Himmel Industries
  • Elite Manufacturing
  • Lima Technology Park
  • Batangas Ship Yards

Foreign companies investing their money towards the growth of Batangas City by providing jobs and financial stability for the locale have also improved other aspects of the city’s structure. As the capacity of the Batangas International Port is maximized to strengthen economic ties locally and abroad, so has the widening of the STAR Tollway, which serves to link Metro Manila to the Port. The declaration of local buildings under PEZA (Philippine Economic Zone Authority) Law has also attracted businesses to relocate to Batangas City.

Other industries are thriving in the city of Batangas—the city has been viewed as the “gateway to the South,” with promising ventures in marine biodiversity and tourism leading the way. The city is currently funding the following projects to attract more visitors:

  • Montemaria Shrine, expected to put Batangas City on the world map as a pilgrimage site
  • Barangay Sampaga, designated as an educational hub for the province
  • Diversion Road, where light industries will flourish

With all these improvements fast-tracking Batangas City as the next destination as a major regional urban center, Pontefino Estates is at the forefront of real estate development with its strategic location at the heart of the industrial hub.
