Mayor Dela Cruz meanwhile looks forward to the additional work opportunity that the Alviera will produce for the townsfolk of Porac. He also expressed his gratitude for choosing his once-barren town into investing and making it into one of the most conducive towns for businesses.
With the continuous developments and investments, he also hopes that the Porac will soon turn into a city.
President Dy disclosed that the land area of Alviera has already increased from the original 1,100 hectares to 1,800 hectares, which makes it their second largest estate in the country.
