PEZA Accredited Park

Under Proclamation No. 526 signed by President Rodrigo Duterte on June 25, 2018, the IT Park covers a land area of 30,013 square meters and is located at Barangay Singalat in Palayan City.

The Board of Directors of the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) recommended the creation of the IT Park pursuant to Republic Act No. 7916, or the Special Economic Zone Act of 1996, as amended by RA No. 8748.

As an IT Park, PCBH is entitled to all benefits due special economic zones, which make it more attractive to foreign investors who would want to set up their own Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) centers and other businesses in Palayan City

Palayan City Business

The image of Palayan City is bound to change. From a rustic, somewhat sleepy city in Nueva Ecija, Palayan will become a dynamic city, offering Palayanos and Novo Ecijanos new and exciting lifestyle.

With plans to make Palayan City a central transport hub already in motion, major infrastructure projects, such as the Central Luzon Link Expressway and NLEx East are projected to make Palayan City the nexus of travel not only within Nueva Ecija, but to other destinations in neighboring provinces as well.

The partnership with the government and the private sector aims to maximize the infrastructure development, an increasingly skilled labor force, and a province set on harnessing long-talent energies for the benefit of the public.

The investments and jobs that the PCBH is bound to generate will increase disposable incomes for the public—empowering the consumer base, spurring economic activity, and igniting the engines of progress across the entire province.
