The Fastest Growing Freeport in the Philippines

The Authority of the Freeport Area of Bataan (AFAB) actively encourages, promotes, induces and accelerates a sound and balanced industrial, economic, and social development of the country in order to provide jobs to the people, especially those in the rural areas, increase productivity and individual and family income, and thereby improve the level and quality of living conditions through the establishment, among others, of special economic zones in suitable and strategic locations in the country and through measures that will attract legitimate and productive foreign investments.

The Freedom of Information (FOI) Program is the Government’s response to the call for transparency and full public disclosure of information. FOI is a government mechanism, which allows Filipino citizens to request any information about government transactions and operations, provided that it shall not put into jeopardy – privacy and matters of national security.

The FOI mechanism for the Executive Branch is enabled via Executive Order No. 2, series of 2016.
