Is BCDA unfriendly with City of Baguio?

The Bases Conversion Development Authority (BCDA) through its President and Chief Executive Officer, Arnel Paciano D Casanova has made public his stand through an open letter to Mayor Muricio G Domogan and the people of Baguio City, that BCDA is not an enemy. It is still committed to promote and facilitate the economic and social development of Central Luzon and even the city of Baguio.

Casanova further stated in his letter that there are more than Two Hundred Fifty Six Million Pesos were earned and put into the coffers of the City in a revenue from BCDA's administration of John Hay Special Economic Zone (JHSEZ).

The people of the Cordillera Region and Baguio have gained additional income from tourism, local labor, environmental protection and preservation activities.

In short, BCDA is confident that it has contributed a lot to them. So it is misleading and wrong to say that BCDA has failed the people in Central Luzon, the residents of Baguio City.

City's Reply

The representative of Lone District of Baguio, Nicasio M Aliping, Jr, and Baguio City Mayor, Mauricio G Domogan made their public reaction by uploading a reply. And this letter was published in Baguio's website on what is the truth. Thus, it divulges the real scenario of the issue.

Therefore, the reply has disproved what Casanova's mentioned in his letter. These were as follows: BCDA is not a friend at all in the true sense of the word, "friend". BCDA generated revenues were not entirely remitted to the city. There was a delay on project development, making the city of Baguio and Central Luzon at practically disadvantage.

In short, as substantially claimed by the city of Baguio, BCDA has failed to meet the conditions which they'd contracted with. Therefore, an appeal has directed to BCDA to strengthen and even correct their violations and meet the conditions as agreed upon. In so doing, BCDA has really meant it "not an enemy".


  1. I believe BCDA affirms its friendship with the City of Baguio through Casanova's open letter. But BCDA's definition of friendship is not the usual Webster definition. It is a friendship with string attached on it.

    1. That. is .why,. I. termed. it. as .dubious.. The. leadership .of. that. man,. Casanova. is .questionable.. The .people. of. Baguio .City. may. do. the. same. regard. as. pointed. out. by. Mayor. Domogan.

  2. Yes BCDA is a friend but not that friend that you would want to have. In layman's terms its called a Frenemy. BCDA doesn't want to fight with Baguio because there's money involved. Baguio doesn't want to risk fighting with BCDA because there's money involved as well too..Its a sticky situation if you ask me.

  3. BCDA is trying hard to portray an image of a friend and ally to Baguio City, with a string of underlying motives. It seemed like a desperate plea since the case has reached its conclusion.
