THE MUNICIPALITY of Nasugbu in Batangas is positioning itself as a tourist destination and competitive investment location, as the province is poised to benefit from the government’s massive “Build, Build, Build” infrastructure program.
“In the coming years, Batangas is seen to continue to play its significant part in the growth and development of the country. This positions the province at the threshold of being directly drawn into the circuit of various economic, social, and recreational activities,” Batangas Governor Hermilando I. Mandanas was quoted as saying during the Batangas Development Summit.
Among the key projects to benefit Batangas are the concreting of the General Aguinaldo–Magallanes–Nasugbu Road and the widening of the Bauan–Mabini Road.
Nasugbu, a first-class municipality, has steadily attracted tourists to its beach resorts and is now poised to become a growth center.
Property companies such as SM Prime and Roxaco Land Corp. have also developed both leisure and residential projects in Nasugbu. These include Club Punta Fuego, Peninsula de Punta Fuego, Terrazas de Punta Fuego and Pico de Loro in Hamilo Coast.
With the municipality becoming increasingly urbanized, the government has addressed the traffic problem by widening the Lemery–Taal Diversion Road. The planned Cavite–Batangas expressway will have a spur road to Tagaytay, terminating in Nasugbu.
“It will be an understatement to say Nasugbu, which has already proven its mettle as a tourist destination, is on the cusp of becoming a growth center — attracting investors, creating job opportunities, and encouraging new businesses of various capacities, all against a backdrop of beautiful rolling terrains and sparkling coastlines,” the statement read.
