Expo Pilipino | Wikipedia audio article

Clark Expo (formerly, Expo Pilipino) was the
Philippine National Centennial Exposition and centerpiece of the commemoration of the
100th anniversary of the declaration of Philippine Independence on June 12, 1898. The 60-hectare heritage and entertainment
park in Clark Freeport Zone, Angeles City is a celebration of the Filipino history,
culture, and achievements in the past century and aspirations for the third millennium. The site was a project of the National Centennial
Commission (NCC) and the Philippine Centennial Exposition Corporation.==Description==
It has a 35,000-seat amphitheater. In addition, the site is also the new home
for the 45-acre (180,000 m2) Nayong Pilipino complex, an open-air museum featuring miniature
attractions of the Philippines and its culture.In early 2010, the site was relaunched as Clark
Education City by the Australian International Training and Management group (AITMG). Initial construction of the campus cost AU$6-million,
with a capacity of 15,000 students. The institution delivers a range of vocational
courses accredited by the Australian Government, English language, and customised training. The facility now operates as Site Skills Training
– [1].==Budget==
The construction of Expo Filipino entailed a total budget of ₱3.5 billion (US$ 63.64
million). Then-President Fidel V. Ramos directed three
state-run financial institutions—Social Security System (SSS), Government Service
Insurance System (GSIS), and Land Bank of the Philippines—to lend a total of ₱1.4-billion
(US$25.45-million) to the joint venture.==Issues==
The project was criticised for the excessive amounts of money that went to its construction. Particular targets of criticism were: a “Freedom
Ring” (>₱1.2-billion); a parking lot (₱111-million); an entry zone (₱118-million); display villages
(₱290-million); and an artificial river (₱76-million) that had bridges spanning
it (total ₱32-million).Expo Filipino closed down in 1999 under President Joseph Estrada,
after sustaining heavy losses.==Reopening==
After having been mothballed for more than five years, the site reopened as Clark Expo
on December 8, 2005, to host trade exhibits and cultural presentations headed by the Clark
Development Corporation (CDC). The park’s reopening featured concerts, world-class
furniture exhibits, carnival rides, and major concerts. CDC president Antonio Ng said the opening
of the Expo Pilipino was realised due to the directive and full support of President Gloria
Macapagal-Arroyo in boosting tourism and investment activities inside the Clark Special Economic
Zone, with her Administrative Order (AO) No. 63 issued on February 17, 2003, directing
the transfer of certain assets and liabilities of the National Development Company (NDC)
in First Clark Centennial Corporation (FCCC) to CDC.In connection with the reopening of
the park was the Clark National Duathlon Championships on December 19, and the holding of the annual
district assembly of some 10,000 members of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Pampanga and Tarlac
on December 23-25. CDC spent some ₱2.5-million for the rehabilitation
of the on-site replica of Barasoain Church, an amphitheatre, trade halls, and convention
centres.==Scheduled events=====Expo Pilipino in Metro Manila as Expo
