IN THE KNOW: Enrile’s measure

A+
A
A-

Then Cagayan Rep. Juan Ponce Enrile was the principal author of a 1994 bill in the House of Representatives, which proposed the creation of the Special Economic Zone and Freeport (Cagayan Freeport), with the aim to boost economic development in northern Philippines.

The bill was signed into law by then President Fidel V. Ramos the following year and was known as Republic Act No. 7922 or the “Cagayan Special Economic Zone Act of 1995.

The law created the state-owned and controlled corporation Cagayan Economic Zone Authority (Ceza), which runs the Cagayan Special Economic Zone and Free Port.

Enrile expected the free port to attract foreign investors from Japan, China, South Korea and Taiwan as well as spur tourism and create thousands of jobs, increasing the region’s income.

In his sponsorship speech, Enrile said the proposed economic zone and free port would serve as the “fulcrum of Cagayan Valley’s development.”

The free port in Cagayan province, located at the northeastern tip of the country, is surrounded by Balintang Channel, China Sea and the Pacific Ocean.

It spans across the municipality of Sta. Ana and the islands of Fuga, Barit, Mabbag in the municipality of Aparri.

Separate customs

The free port operates as a separate customs territory similar to Hong Kong, Singapore, Lubuan in Malaysia and Hamburg in Germany.

“As an economic zone, it aims to develop the whole area into a self-sustaining industrial, commercial investment, financial and tourism-recreational center and, likewise, with suitable retirement/residential areas,” Ceza said on its website.

The economic zone has more than 100 locators, most of which are engaged in interactive gaming and support services.

Further, it said the free port was benefiting from its location, which is near the lucrative markets of Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea and China. Inquirer Research

    JPE’s pet project was his way of squeezing money for his various nefarious purposes. Everyone knows the Enriles are very much behind the whole car-smuggling operations in Port Irene.

  • jurbinsky77

    Smugglers’ haven. Even SC could not stop them. If Jackie Enrile is elected as Senator, how much more damage can these Enriles do to the country.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_EDXEVEFHW2ZT5VWHDWBNM6XGE4 RyanE

    SP Enrile’s “smuggling” legacy is instrumental in the closing-shop of most foreign assembly plants in the country resulting to lots of jobs lost and unemployment.

    The public should beware of this family and should not give a chance for his son to win this coming elections, else SP Enrile’s “smuggling” legacy will certainly continue through his son.

At hindi makalimutan ni simeon na ilang beses syang nasabon ni enrile noong senador pa sya dahil palaging late.

        Why and how can say that “this nation is under the dictatorship of one man”?  Has anybody’s freedom been curtailed, especially its freedom to express oneself?  Has anyone been arrested of any political crime?

Vote straight LP at kung may ayaw kayo isama ninyo si Hagedorn. Please lang UNA NO!!…Kung hindi babalik tayo sa Kadiliman!!…

  • garcia677

    Jackie Enrile, you exposed yourselves to be kings of smugglers through your cousin Ponce, the head of CEZA. You have legitimates businesses acquired by your father through his alliance and as hatchet man of Marcos likewise smuggling of cars and vehicles s juicy business is also one of them. Even Jueteng it is informed that you and your father are the protectors that’s why you are too close to Erap the putative Lord of all Jueteng Lords. I just hope and pray that voters like me won’t elect your kind

    CEZA is a smuggling hub. Smuggling is More lucrative than legitimate business. Ruffy Biazon, do your thing otherwise leave your post to a a more competent commissioner  who has the will to curb smuggling. De Lima is a lame duck and under the mercy of Commission on Appointments. She has recently been bypassed by CA!

    THIS “Free Port” thing and its “separate customs territory” is…
    a “ripe breeding ground for corruption” in all its forms and manipulations, 
    making its “evil-minded political leaders” (meaning the Enrilies) richer and more powerful.

  • manual47

    Just the name “free port” tells you that anything and anybody goes in that port.  Guess who benefit from it.  It’s quite amazing how politicians works for their benefits…….

       Kaya dapat itigil na din yung plano ng mga Angara sa Quirino…gagawin din nilang kaharian yun sa pagnanakaw nila..parehong matalino ito si Angara at Enrile kaya nilang gawin legal ang pagnanakaw nila..

  • sam_aquino

    the senate president is NOT that STUPID not to know what is going on in his turf…

    The Enriles are the exceptions to any rule in Cagayan. A clever-ugly monkey, Juan Enrile, had bad reasons and bad intentions when he authored the Cagayan Freeport, after he badly denuded the beautiful forests in his fiefdom.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/SYG36KOOLRY47VA3ICPJJ5CQTQ ADD

    Ginawa talaga ni Enrile ang batas na yan para sa kanya at pamilya nya para magkaroon ng utang na loob ang mga taga Cagayan sa Enrile Family which translates to votes.

    Matagal ng ginawang pag-aari ni Matandang Kawatan ang Cagayan, ang mga bobong taga Cagayan ay binoto nman ang Pamilyang Kawatan.

    Wag na sana tayong magkamali uli, wag na nating iboto ang mga gahaman sa pera at kapangyarihan.

         ‘tuwad na daan’ did not mention any names and i wish any president best of luck in rooting out corruption, eradicate hunger and reduction in criminality…you said mr. tuwad is useless and his purpose is to flag ‘negativity’ of the society and you even wish his demise…is it a lie about hunger, poverty and corruption without you being personal against mr. tuwad…if what he said is true i think you are the one who will not come on top about the issue….also on other note, how can you trust any politician running for a post or even allow it when they were convicted as criminal like ERAP but hey it can only happen in Phillipines (that man is a joke, we are ashame abroad when ask how’s the justice system back home),,,don’t know much of arroyo but heard karma came early…saka sino ang bingi at bulag between you and mr. tuwad na daan…maganda ba ang Pinas sa dami ng investor gaya ng sabi mo pero maraming gutom not because they don’t have qualification but because like you they have the right to live as well…if the gov’t is so good at their job perhaps walang magugutom regardless of their qualification di ba…but hey good luck to your incoming election the last time i voted was when marcos was thrown out and i was right all along …we got rid of one dictator to suffer on more wannabes..explain to me how a civil servant earning less than 70000 pesos per month become a billionaire like Binay…or how can Enrile stay in power turncoating from marcos all the way to the present time without any audit on his wealth…please please for your sake choose wisely….in the end kabayan kung maganda ang pinas bakit di kaming lahat na nasa abroad umuwing permanente…saka kung maganda ang pinas bakit maraming graduates or non graduates willing even to bribe or even become illegals abroad just to escape Phillippines…dati isang bansa ngayon daming autonomous region …well done to all officials of this gov’t past and present who manage to divide instead of uniting the Filipinos…so, forgive me for saying as my friends said coming back from their vacation from our motherland…maganda sa mata maraming pinagbago pero mas pangit daw pag tiningnan mo buhay ng masa…dati raw ang pangit ay sa smoky mountain  ngayon daw daming bahay sa ilalim ng tulay saka daming naghihirap sa taas ng presyo…i missed the beautiful Philippines not the ugly Philippines way of life created by corrupt system affecting millions of juan de la cruz alike

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_6ODLDBBLVPVJCOODC6Y4CKJTVA lex

        Ang dami  at haba ng sinabi mo pero walang TORYA, di mo naiintindihan ang ISSUE ni tuwad na daan, INTINDIHIN mo muna, ok? .

        Pareho lang tayo na nakikitrabaho sa ibang bansa pero ako kahit malayo at madalang umuwi sa PINAS, keep in touch ako sa nangyayari kaya kung mahal mo ang PILIPINAS bilang PILIPINO, dapat tingnan mo ang kagandahan at di ang mga negatibong aspect.

        Ang issue ni tuwad na daan ay personal na atake sa kasalukuyang Presidente. Ang programa ng kasalukuyan ay ituwid ang maraming baluktot na ginawa ng sinundang rehimen, kung saan 9 na taong punong puno ng katiwalian at corruption, kaya nga binansagang , TUWID na DAAN “, From the word implies, ginawa nyang , ” tuwad na daan ” ,.It means, nanggagago sya. Di mo ba naisip, puede namang PANDAK na DAAN, o kaya TUWAD GLORIA,  di ba? At sinabi nyang SIMEON, it means, tinutukoy nya dito si PNOY kasi pangalan nya yon.

        Hindi ibig sabihin na dahil nasa ibang bansa ka , nasa ibang bansa ako, ay pangit na ang PILIPINAS. Mas malaki lang talaga ang puedeng kitain sa labas ng PILIPINAS. Napakaganda ng PILIPINAS, ang pangit lang talaga ay ang sistema ng PAMUMUNO, ang napakaduming PULITIKA.Kung magkakaroon lang sana ng pinunong DI CORRUPT at may malasakit sa BAYAN, madaling aangat at babangon ang EKONOMIYA ng PINAS.

        Sa nakikita ko, isa na si PNOY sa mga naging lider na masasabing di DI CORRUPT at may magandang hangarin sa bayan. Ang mga nagagalit sa kanya ngayon ay yong mga CORRUPT na nasasagasaan nya. Para sakin, isang magandang simula na ang ginagawa ni PNOY sa ngayon, sana kung sinu man ang susunod sa kanya, sana maipagpatuloy ang sinimulang ito.

         kung gusto mo, magbasa ka at wag ka lang mag rely sa sabi sabi ng kaibigan mo. Sobrang pangit ng nangyari sa Pinas ng nakaraang 9 na taon. Sa ngayon dumarami na ulit ang investor kumpara sa nakaraan na halos naglayasan lahat dahila n sa lantarang katiwalian ng corruption.

        Pero personal choice yan, kung napapangitan ka sa PINAS, eh wag ka na lang umuwi dyan  ka na lang. Basta ako, kahit malaki ang kinikita ko dito sa labas, babalik at babalik pa rin ako sa PINAS.

        Ang kailangan lang ng PINAS ay mabuting lider na di CORRUPT at aasenso na ito. Kasi ang ang PINAS kaya nyang mag SELF SUSTAIN dahil meron itong sariling resources , teknolohiya na lang  at management ang kulang.!

         please…i think you need to go to spec saver as i’m not ‘nakikitrabaho’ sa ibang bansa like you and go home….and you are right i never been home because of the bulok system you are enjoying…if you listen i did not mention anything against pinoy but instead i wish any president who will be in charge to eradicate hunger, corruption and criminality…hey, you are entitled to your opinion and answer this if it is too beautiful why are you outside like millions of OFW’s..is it not because like you confirmed you get more abroad to provide to your family at home…there’s nothing wrong with that but it only shows Pinas can’t provide what you are providing now if you stay di ba….so who is hypocrite defending your lifestyle when you are outside….tsk tsk tsk…you are missing the point…why would i not rely to my friends whose been home as balikbayans…are they like you who only says 9 yrs of suffering under the previous regime…iho, read again my letter, digest it and i wish you luck for the future but for me i decided since marcos time it won’t change…dati isang bansa but now it’s divided to many autonomous region and you still think it’s beautiful…for what …dividing the country by idiots that national heroes fought to have our freedom under spanish regime, japanese imperial army and americans…mabuting leader you said…the congress did nothing to pass a law about so called ‘dynasty’ ops that includes aquino …but hey nothing wrong to be proud to be a Filipino abroad just don’t say anything about politics because we are a laughing matter allowing erap to run for gov’t office position as if you are allowing criminals like terrorist, rapist, murderers…saka sabi ko maganda ang pinas sa mata pero pangit ang sistema which you also confirmed for 9 yrs sabi mo…i was there iho during edsa and history keeps repeating itself kaya ka nasa abroad di ba dahil walang pinagbago…so, good luck to good guys and your assumption about me is a reactive response and a sign of weakness …i’m also in touch like you but not suffering from the stupidity of the corrupt system you are trying to defend…good luck to your candidate i supposed what we said before even daga can win the election against marcos but now they have familiar names i heard 30 years ago….
