The Philippines is one of the fastest growing countries in Asia and yet still has more business opportunities to offer for foreign investors. Some would say the metro is already congested and there isn’t enough space for other businesses but this isn’t where your future business will be located.
Venture into Tablas! This rich island is strategically situated in the middle of the Philippines and is the largest island in the province of Romblon. Tablas strikes the perfect balance between rural and urban – the island still isn’t commercialized however all towns are easily accessible with good and smooth roads and hardly any traffic.
Tablas Economic Zone, Inc. (TEZI) can offer ready-made businesses to investors. Since this project is in collaboration with local government agencies, you won’t have to go through all the usual red tape that other investors have to go through. The Philippines encourages foreigners to invest in the country mainly to boost the economy. The Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) and the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) will work hand in hand with TEZI.
Getting in and out of Tablas is quite easy, you can choose from air or sea transport. Philippine Airlines operates 3 flights per week to the island’s own airport, Tugdan Airport. Montenegro Lines and 2Go offers ferry trips to and from Batangas Port, which is just a few hours from Manila. Popular tourist attraction Boracay is also just a short boat ride away from Tablas. With the opening of Boracay International Airport in 2016, Tablas will be even easier to access. One of the most popular types of special economic zones is the free port and is known to dramatically increase export-driven manufacturing industries in the world. Tablas currently has two major ports in Odiongan and Looc, which are already operating trade boat shipping points.
TEZI is currently focusing on the agro-industry on the island. Investors will have special incentives since they will be setting up businesses in an eco zone. Some of these said incentives include tax holidays, tax free imports and exports, as well as residency privileges. Other phases of TEZI will soon cover other industries, ranging from tourism to BPO.
Tablas already has a small expat community but soon the island will be host to retirement developments. It is an ideal place to simply live and enjoy. The island boasts excellent roads, which was a major project of the Department of Public Works and Highway of the Philippines. There are only a few cars and no polluting industries on the island. What’s more, this clean and green island still has expansive lands just begging to be sown, making it ideal for expansive agricultural businesses. Retirement parks and centers as well as agro-industries are official economic zone programs supported by PEZA.
There are already several agricultural businesses in Tablas and the island is even the main source of produce for neighboring islands such as Boracay and Romblon, Romblon. Aside from having access to produce, you can also easily get fresh seafood on the island.
