The 177-hectare GGLC will now carry the name of the Sheikh in recognition of Kuwaiti huge investments in the GGLC estimated at over $1 billion. Needless to say Dennis Wright, president of Peregrine Development International Inc. (Peregrine) went all out to provide a temporary venue unlike anything ever seen before at Clark city. it was estimated that his company spent well over 10 million pesos in preparations.
It was one hell of a project and the mission was carried out to perfection. You should have seen the tents, the stage, air-conditioning units, sound system, banners, etc. Even someone with as much money as the Sheikh had to be impressed. The GGDC is the corporate arm of the Kuwait and Gulf Link Holding Co. (KGL) in the Philippines which is developing the logistics city. There are a lot of initials to deal with here, GGLC, GGDC and KGL. Whatever, they are all connected in developing the Logistics City and we are talking mega bucks.
The Emir flew into into Clark at noon time after a four day state visit. On his drive to the GGLC he was treated to views of his likeness on each lamp post along the route he traveled. The Sheik probably had to be impressed and then to see the set up at the designated site had impressed the hell out of anyone looking at it, and, so we can easily imagine how he felt. But, being a cool Sheikh he held a straight face throughout the whole ceremony.
This project definetly will be able to provide more work opportunities for the people especially in Clark and Angeles city area.
