Clark Investors and Locators Association

As members, locators have first-hand access to different government offices and service providers of Clark. CILA’s extensive network also provides an arena to connect with key corporations and executives in the economic zone by way of General Membership Meetings and fellowships. Members are as well kept abreast of everything that is happening in Clark.


Geared with a significant membership base and a proven track record in representing Clark Freeport Zone locators, Clark Investors and Locators Association is a non-profit organization recognized by the Clark Development Corporation (CDC) and the Base Conversion Development Authority (BCDA).

How does it work?



In 1993, the Clark Development Corp. (CDC) signed in five locators to promote investment and development at the Clark Special Economic Zone–one from the British Virgin Islands and the rest from the Philippines.

The number of locating investors continuously grew. And in their desire to stand out in addressing their concerns as locators, a group of 43 members led by Atty. Elena Lim, president of Kita Corp., formally signed up for the covenant without a constitution and by-laws in 1996. This small group gave birth to Clark Investors and Locators Association.

CILA obtained its approval as a non-profit organization from the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 22, 1997.
