PCC approves Pasay reclamation joint venture
The Philippine Competition Commission (PCC), the anti-trust body, has approved the joint venture between the Pasay City government and the Pasay Harbor City Corp. led by businessman Dennis Uy for the P265-hectare reclamation project.
The city government granted rights to reclaim the municipal waters of Pasay in Manila Bay while Pasay Harbor City Corp. will finance all raw land expenses in the 265-hectare reclamation project.
