Batangas lays on red carpet treatment to lure business

Manila: The provincial government of Batangas has welcomed the Port Users Confederation (PUC) to do business at Batangas Container Terminal (BCT). The PUC brought a delegation to the port this week. PUC officials said they are seriously looking at the Port of Batangas as an alternative port for their shipments because of its strategic location, proximity to markets and its modern port facilities. Congestion in Manila was driving PUC and others to look for alternative shipping hubs. The PUC is made up of 17 members and tends to be a very vocal body on local port happenings in the Philippines.  [04/04/14]
