Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano on Friday assured that all facilities for the country’s hosting of the 30th Southeast Asian Games will be finished promptly, and this includes the New Clark City.

The area, which will host the centerpiece athletics and aquatics events, is being built on a 9,450-hectare land in Capas town, Tarlac by the Bases Conversion and Development Authority.

“We will make sure that no glitches would ruin our hosting of the Games,” said Cayetano, appointed by President Duterte as chairman of the SEA Games Organizing Committee (Phisgoc).

“This early, even our major projects like the New Clark City has September of next year as target of completion. That’s a tall order, but it can be done.”

A majority of the events will be held at the Clark Freeport Zone in Pampanga, through the support of the Clark Development Corp.

Other events will take place in Subic Freeport Zone in Zambales and will get support from the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority.

Metro Manila will host other events such as basketball and volleyball.

“But we will showcase spots outside of Metro Manila . . . We have coordinated with the provinces within the fringes of hosts Clark and Subic to showcase their best before our guests,” Cayetano said, adding that local tourism expects a boost around the time the Games get underway.
