New SBMA head backed

By EFREN L. DANAO, The Manila Times Senior Reporter

Felicito Payumo, former chairman of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority, lauded Wednesday the appointment of Fil Salonga as new SBMA chairman.

"We welcome Fil’s appointment. He has the academic and professional qualifications to lead the SBMA," he said.

Payumo said Salonga is a graduate of King’s Point in the United States, the merchant marine equivalent of the Annapolis Naval Academy, and president of Bataan and Philippine shipyards.

"Since he is knowledgeable about port development, I am sure he will contribute positively to the development of Subic," he said.

Payumo noted that Salonga is independent, unaffiliated as he is with any partisan group.

"He is not identified with any of the political groupings surrounding Subic. This will enable him to decide more decisively without being subjected to political pressures, or being accused of favoritism," Payumo said.
