Top 3 Reasons Why Pampanga is one of the Fastest Growing Cities in the Philippines

As developers create communities in more key cities across the country, investors now have more options to choose from in addition to Metro Manila.

As such, decongesting the metropolis has long been a goal for the Philippine government—and Pampanga has been at the center of one of the country’s key development projects, a booming megalopolis that marries economic growth with a strong historical heritage.

Now why is Pampanga one of the fast growing cities in the Philippines? We list three key reasons why it will become the country’s next economic corridor.

Development in key economic areas

The plan to grow Pampanga into a metropolis will focus on four areas of economic activity: agriculture (agropolis), environment and heritage tourism (ecopolis), waterfront and aquaculture (aquapolis), and an airport-centered district specializing in business, logistics, technology, innovation and education (aeropolis).

The aeropolis in particular is centered in the Pampanga Golden Triangle, an area around Clark International Airport (CIA), comprised of the cities of Angeles, San Fernando and Mabalacat, the municipalities of Mexico, Porac, Floridablanca, Lubao, Guagua, Santa Rita and Bacolor, and the Clark Freeport and Special Economic Zone.

A growing business and residential zone

In addition to business, Pampanga’s viability as a residential district is contingent on its strategic location. Current and future residents can benefit from access to existing infrastructure. 

This includes the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX), Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX), as well as continuing developments like the North-South Commuter Railway, the Subic-Clark Cargo Railway, the NLEX-SLEX Connector Road, and Skyway Stage 3.

Alongside these developments, demand for industrial, office, commercial, hospitality, and residential spaces in the Pampanga Golden Triangle is expected to increase.  

All these developments will fittingly earn Pampanga the status of “Gateway of Asia,” as one of the more secure and livable places to reside in the Philippines.

A future-ready development plan

Here’s another reason why Pampanga is one of the fastest growing cities in the Philippines.

Part of the region’s development plan calls for identifying water supply sources for the megalopolis, as well as designing flood protection measures.

In fact, a series of reservoirs are planned to manage flooding during the rainy season while doubling as a source of water in the dry season. Furthermore, investments in city and municipality water treatment plants and distribution systems will help in the better management of waste-water problems and provide clean water for the growing community.

Pampanga’s development plan will also benefit from increased economic activity and opportunities thanks to an expected boom in investments. 

What does this mean for future residents? A compelling alternative to key cities like Metro Manila where individuals and families can live, work, and grow along with the city.
