CLARK FREEPORT –– San Miguel Corporation (SMC) president Ramon S. Ang on Wednesday said the groundbreaking and construction of the P735-billion New Manila International Airport in Bulacan province would start by the end of this year.

Ang made the announcement during the contract signing here for the construction of the airport.


Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade and Ang signed the concession agreement for the airport project at the Department of Transportation office here.
