Bacoor reclamation likened to Denmark project
MetadataShow full item record
Denmark’s ambitious project to create a floating “Silicon Valley” off the coast of Copenhagen which is expected to attract as many as 380 companies in the biotech, pharmaceutical and life sciences sector and create as many as 12,000 new jobs for the Danish people, has a counterpart here in the Philippines. Announced last year, the Holmene project involves massive land-reclamation that would see the creation of nine new islands 10 kilometers south of Copenhagen, adding 3.1 million square meters of new land and 17 kilometers of new coastline in the area. Bacoor City leaders view their proposed reclamation project as the local version of Denmark’s program, citing many similarities in terms of economic benefits and green features between Holmene and their own development plan.
